St. Agnes' intuition in spousal love and in the nature of love

It is argued in this essay that we can have an »original grasp of the attitude of other persons« (»originales Erfassen«) of persons’ acts, like love hence we know about love not only because of our self-awareness. In this essay I examine two different kinds of spousal love and compare them with each other. For this examination I am using the example of the spousal love of St. Agnes, the bride of Christ.
