Writing the Mystic Body: Sexuality and Textuality in the écriture-féminine of Saint Catherine of Genoa
Hypatia 6 (3):185 - 207 (1991)
|Abstract||This paper looks to evolve a discourse about the body in medieval women's mystical experience via an understanding of the life and work of Saint Catherine of Genoa as écriture-féminine. Drawing upon Catherine's resolution of binarism through the articulation of sexuality and textuality, I argue that the female mystic's experience of the body as site of struggle helps move beyond analysis of a binary experience to a politics of speaking the body directly.|
