A description of the experience

Hadewijch – from Medieval writings on female spirituality

His appearance could not be described in any language. His head was grand and broad, with curly hair, white in colour and crowned with a crown that is like a precious stone that is called sardonyx and has three colours; black, white and red. His eyes were marvellously unspeakable to see and drew all things to him in Love
