A comparative study of the articulation of liminality in the vernacular theology of Julian of Norwich’s revelations of divine love and marguerite Porete’s the Mirror of simple souls
This dissertation explores commonalities between Julian of Norwich’s Revelations of Divine Love and Marguerite Porete’s The Mirror of Simple Souls by looking at how the language of the two texts is employed in their descriptions of apprehending divinity. The exploration investigates the verbal textures of the texts to see where and how Julian’s and Marguerite’s ideas complement each other and thus might be similar communications regarding; apprehending divinity, how liminality seems to play a role in progress towards apprehending divinity and the idea that Revelations and The Mirror might be part of a wider dialogue that transcends time, space, culture and geography.
