Women Mystics of the Contemporary Era : Nineteenth-Twentieth Centuries: An Anthology

Women Mystics of the Contemporary Era : Nineteenth-Twentieth Centuries: An Anthology

In contrast with preceding periods, the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries are poor in feminine spiritual literature. The controversy caused by the Enlightenment and Jansenism occupied the intellectual and religious scene of the time. It was not until the second half of the nineteenth century before a new mystcal flame rekindled and rose up again. New vocations blossomed against a background of positivism and atheistic humanism.
