8vo - 21.5 x 14 cm.; 252 pp. Cistercian Fathers Series, No. 63. Translated, with an introduction and notes, by Alexandra Barratt. Index. This is the translation of a compilation by another member of the Helfta community some twenty years after Gertrud's work that tells more of 'the favors lavished on or revealed to her'. Gertrud (1256-1302) was a Benedictine nun at the monastery of Helfta in Upper Saxony who experienced visions, many relating to the divine Heart. She is regarded as an important precursor of devotion to the Sacred Heart. An as-new and unused book.
Title: Gertrud the Great of Helfta: The Herald of God's Loving-Kindness: Book Three.
