Description

This session brings together papers that compare, contrast, or reinterpret the Mirror in conjunction with other works. The title's word "resonances" opens the session to considering not only the context and intertext of Marguerite Porete's own work, but also the effects that her book has had on later thinkers. This will continue the discussion about whether Marguerite "plays well with others," and about what other texts can be most productively read or taught alongside her book.
