Marguerite Porete
Mirror of Simple Souls

Margaret (?-1310) was a beguine from Hainaut who was burned at the stake as a relapsed heretic. Here is the first modern English translation of the complete text of The Mirror, written between 1296 and 1306, a theological treatise that analyzes how love in humans is related to divine love and how the soul may experience a lasting union with God in this life.
