Description - Spiritual Marriage by Dyan Elliot

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, this book traces the history of spiritual marriage from apostolic times to the beginning of the 16th century.
