Marguerite Porete wrote with rhetorical brilliance and unflinching passion about the path to oneness with God, in her treatise The Mirror of Simple Souls. Porete offers valuable teachings which deserve to be studied within the mystical tradition and have much to teach us still today. Despite receiving praise for her book, this woman who described herself as ‘the phoenix who is alone’ paid the ultimate price for her refusal to be censored, and was executed at the stake in 1310 and dismissed as a heretic. This was not however the end of her story… and 710 years after her death, her words still burn bright, illuminating a spiritual path of profound beauty.
