Brides in the Desert: The Spirituality of the Beguines

This advert is located in and around Carlisle, London

Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Carlisle "The voices of the Beguines, women who sought to make sense of their experience of God in a world where suffering was commonplace, can be difficult to hear because of the conventions of the literary and theological forms they used. By placing them in their historical, literary and theological context this book introduces the reader to some of the most challenging religious texts of the Middle Ages. The four women discussed in this book between them span the thirteenth century, a period which was the time of greatest flowering of Beguine mystic literature. 'Brides in the Desert' gives readers access to some of the most beautiful and remarkable vernacular religious texts of the Middle Ages, and to the voices of women unheard for centuries." Book in very good condition. See Oxfam website for delivery information
