Abstract:This dissertation retrieves the voices of two medieval women for theology: Mechthild of Magdeburg, a Christian, and Lalla of Kashmir, a Śaiva. It employs comparative method toward the feminist ends of widening the theological canon and promoting the flourishing of women and those they love. Each of the two thinkers features a relational theological structure characterized by metaphors of fluidity. Mechthild and Lalla teach that the relationship between God, world, and soul/self is rooted in God's nature, which Mechthild depicts as love and Lalla as consciousness. Cosmic hierarchies facilitate the self's knowledge of that relationship. This project uncovers the metaphysical relations in these texts in order to contribute to a feminist conversation on "dualism," in which the pejorative term denotes hierarchy and the devaluing of women and bodies. Mechthild and Lalla show us that there are other ways of thinking of duality, or twoness. The comparison demonstrates, first, that duality is a relation: it fits into a relational view of reality. Second, relations of duality are not necessarily linked to women's oppression and denigration of the body. Important differences in their terminology and thought patterns fill out the richness and variety of modes of relation. The conclusion offers reflections on feminist being, particularly the validity of different life paths due to the many obstacles to relations of mutuality.
