Sacred Poetry

Thanks to MK, I found a fascinating site on mystical poetry called Poetry Chaikhana. It has sacred poetry from a variety of traditions including Catholic and Orthodox. The poem 2 posts below by Mechthild of Magdeburg is from that site.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
