A  wonderful piece posted by Hannah Lucas on the blogsite by Women’s Literary Culture and the Medieval Canon tells of the image of the Virgin Mary in the “enclosed garden.” Lucas takes this image and links it to theology, pilgrimage, and gender implications of women’s spirituality. A wonderful read!
