An analysis of what mysticism might mean if its underlying presumptions–that God desires suffering, that mystics marry Christ–are false. Also explores trends in the scholarship on female mysticism, including a devaluation or dismissal of erotic and psychological aspects. The concluding section treats the inversions of values and meanings in mysticism, then surveys perceptions regarding whether saints’ mortification is for imitation or wondrous admiration.

Keywords:   eroticism, psychology of mysticism, psychohistory, insanity, sublimation, Carolyn Walker Bynum, Leo Steinberg, inversion, imitanda, admiranda
