Spiritual Marriage by Dyan Elliott

Book Description

The early Christian and medieval practice of spiritual marriage, in which husband and wife mutually and voluntarily relinquish sexual activity for reasons of piety, plays an important role in the development of the institution of marriage and in the understanding of female religiosity. Drawing on hagiography, chronicles, theology, canon law, and pastoral sources, Dyan Elliott traces the history of spiritual marriage in the West from apostolic times to the beginning of the sixteenth century.

Proving Woman by Dyan Elliott Proving Woman, Paperback (March 2004)

Around the year 1215, female mystics and their sacramental devotion were among orthodoxy's sophisticated weapons in the fight against heresy. While studies of sanctity and heresy tend to be undertaken separately, this book brings these two avenues of inquiry together.
