dc.description.abstractAlthough Christianity has always affirmed the go odness of creation, historically, the Church has had an ambivalent attitude toward the body, often denigrating it i n favor of the spirit. Only recently has embodiment theology begun to reaffirm the importance of the body in a faith whose central tenet is the Incarnation of God in human flesh. However, although embodim ent theology addresses human beings’ creation in the image of God, little attention is paid t o how humans might reflect in their bodies the image of a God who is triune. The twelfth-ce ntury visionary Hildegard of Bingen set out a framework that does suggest how humanity reflects the Trinity. This framework can then be expanded upon by examining the primary metaphors for God used by thr ee oth er medieval women mystics: Julian of Norwich with God as Mother, Mechthild of Magdeburg with God as Lover, and Teresa of Avila with God as Friend.
