Steven Rozenski, Joshua Byron Smith, Claire M. Waters (eds) Mystics, Goddesses, Lovers, and Teachers. Medieval Visions and their Legacies. Studies in Honour of Barbara Newman Brepols, 2023.. Hardback, 420 pages, Size:156 x 234 mm, Illustrations:1 b/w, 18 col., Language: English. Summary The conjunction of medieval religious studies and gender studies in the past several decades has produced not only nuanced attention to medieval mystics and religious thinkers, but a transformation in the study of medieval culture more broadly. This volume showcases new investigations of mysticism and religious writing in the Middle Ages and the early modern period. It also presents groundbreaking explorations of the feminized divine, from medieval to modern, and the many debts of medieval secular texts and cultures to the religious world that surrounded them. Medieval crossover also defines this volume: the contributors examine the crossovers between male and female, cloister and saeculum, divine and human, and vernacular and Latin that characterized so much of the complexity of medieval literary culture. These collected chapters examine mystics from Hildegard of Bingen and Juliana of Cornillon to Richard Rolle, Julian of Norwich, and Tomás de Jesús; the modern theologies of Philip K. Dick and Charles Williams; goddesses like Fame, Dame Courtesy, and Mother Church; and the role of religious belief in shaping conceptions of pacifism, obscenity, authorship, and bodily integrity. Together, they show the extraordinary impact of Barbara Newman's scholarship across a range of fields and some of the new areas of investigation opened by her work. Contributors: Jerome E.
