Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809139596, Paperback)

In this Classic of Western Spirituality™ readers will find the first English translation of the complete works of Elisabeth of Schönau, a twelfth-century Benedictine nun who claimed to have a series of extraordinary visionary experiences. The complete works of Elisabeth include: three visionary diaries; a book of sermons, the Book of the Ways of God; Revelations about the Sacred Company of the Virgins of Cologne; the Resurrection of the Blessed Virgin; a collection of Elisabeth's letters; and a text describing Elisabeth's last days by her brother and secretary, Eckbert.

Elisabeth's prophetic message brought consolation to the people of her day and a call for firmness of faith and the moral life. Today's readers will gain insight into how the communal, liturgical culture of a Benedictine monastery could shape the interior life and prophetic identity of a woman committed to its ideals.

The audience for this book will include historians, theologians and students of: mysticism and spirituality; women's religious life; monastic life; medieval culture; and hagiography.
