Angela of Foligno has risen from relative obscurity to a prominent rank among the most significant representatives of the Franciscan and Christian mystical tradition. The scorching yet feminine way in which she narrates her dramatic love affair with the passionate "suffering God-man" strikes a chord in contemporary readers. The intensity of her account has no match in Christian mystical literature.Selections from Memorial, the first part of her book, recount the progression in her spiritual journey. Passages from Instructions, the second part, reveal her role as mother and "teacher of theologians."
