El espejo de las almas simples (Tiempo de Clásicos) (Spanish by Margarita Porete,Blanca Garí

By Margarita Porete,Blanca Garí

El 1 de junio de 1310, en París, falleció en una hoguera de l. a. Inquisición una mujer de los angeles que poco se sabe: Margarita Porete, una beguina de los angeles región de Hainaut que había escrito un libro, El espejo de las almas simples, y que fue l. a. causa de su condena. Tras su muerte, este libro tuvo tan enorme difusión que, en los últimos siglos de l. a. Edad Media, traspasó fronteras geográficas y lingüísticas como pocos textos de su época, traduciéndose del francés (o del possible unique picardo) al latín, al inglés y al italiano.
Escrito en forma de un diálogo entre personificaciones alegóricas, y en el marco de las formas de expresión de los angeles literatura cortés, El espejo de las almas simples es una obra que enraíza en las corrientes de los angeles llamada «mística femenina» del siglo XIII y cuyos contenidos se vinculan estrechamente al pensamiento del Maestro Eckhart, quien casi con seguridad lo conoció y leyó. El libro, caído en el olvido, fue redescubierto, y con él su autora, en pleno siglo XX. Desde entonces se reconoce en esta obra uno de los grandes hitos de los angeles literatura mística occidental.

«Antes de enfrentarme a un juicio por herejía en l. a. Edad Media, yo habría dejado de escribir. Pero Margarita Porete no lo hizo; period un espíritu libre y una valiente escritora que estaba dispuesta a arriesgarlo todo, incluso su vida».
