Thinking about God’s desire with the medieval mystics

Wendy Farley is professor of religion at the Graduate School of Theology, University of Redlands, where she directs the program in Christian spirituality. Her research focuses on contemplative practice, mysticism, and classical texts and how they intersect with issues of social justice, feminism, womanism, and queer theology. She is the author of several books on mysticism and feminism, including The Thirst of God: Contemplating God’s Love with Three Women Mystics, about medieval mystics Marguerite Porete, Mechthild of Magde­burg, and Julian of Norwich, and, most recently, Beguiled by Beauty: Cultivating a Life of Con­templation and Compassion.

Some readers may not have heard of Mechthild of Magdeburg. Who was she, and why does she interest you?
