Item description for Hadewijch: Writer - Beguine - Love Mystic by Paul Mommaers & Elisabeth M. Dutton...

Hadewijch, c.1210-1260, commands increasing attention internationally. As an author, she is extremely creative and artistic. As a beguine, she belongs to a revolutionary woman's movement formed by religious women who, conscious of their gender, did not wish to enter either into marriage or a convent. Spiritually and materially independent, these first beguines run into conflict with the social order, and endure the reaction of clerics, religious and secular authorities, and those in holy orders. As a mystic, Hadewijch illuminates both the glorious aspect of the love-relationship with God and its painful aspect: with the enjoyment of love goes an increasingly intense desire. Consequently, union with God is not a spiritual elevation by which a person is released from his or her being human, it consists rather of the interplay between resting in God and working in this world. "You must live as a human being!" is the kernel of Hadewijch's life and teaching. This book provides an illuminating introduction to one of the more colourful characters and important theologians in the early medieval period.
