Here is the first English translation based on the new critical edition of The Flowing Light of the Godhead, the sole mystical visionary work of Mechthild, a 13th-century (c. 1260-c. 1282/94) German Beguine. This challenging work of deep religious insight reflects Mechthild's inner life, and God's as well, employing a great variety of traditional medieval literary forms and genres in prose and verse.

A very unique mystical voice. I was particularly struck by the personal intimacy expressed with all aspects of the Trinity and the striking, poetic wording of her experiences. Her way of phrasing transcendant love was rich and lovely.
