Show Summary Details


This chapter considers the writings of three laypeople—the late-medieval Catholic physician Ulrich Pinder, the blind unmarried woman (Jungfraw) of Braunschweig Justitia Sengers, and the seventeenth-century noblewoman Catharina Regina von Greiffenberg—who leave us a record of their own affinity for the affective spirituality fostered by contemplation of the Passion.

Keywords: Ulrich Pinder; Justitia Sengers; Catharina von Greiffenberg; spirituality; Passion of Christ
