The wounded beloved: Affective wounding in Ancrene Wisse and the wooing group

Abstract:

In her Seven Manieren van Minne (There are Seven Manners of Loving), the Flemish nun and prioress Beatrice of Nazareth (1200–68) describes the protracted violence that love inflicts on the heart:


at times love becomes so boundless and so overflowing in the soul, when it itself is so mightily and violently moved in the heart, that it seems to the soul that the heart is wounded again and again, and that these wounds increase every day in bitter pain and in fresh intensity.
