The Mystics Who Came to Dinner
Author Carmel BendonImagine a gathering of six medieval mystics enjoying a meal and lively conversation on a rainy evening in a cozy modern home. Julian of Norwich, Margery Kempe, Richard Rolle, Hildegard of Bingen, Francis of Assisi, and the author of the Cloud of Unknowing. In this setting, with their charming host, the strange and sometimes alienating aspects of their medieval milieu fades away, while their commonalities and distinctive personalities shine through.
For those who have read and loved these figures, and those just coming to know the mystical tradition, here is a feast for heart and soul.
