Abstract

A 12,000-word article which argues that sermons and art related to the most renowned medieval stigmatics, Francis of Assisi and Catherine of Siena reveal that deification was a theological concept recognized in the medieval Latin West. It also underlines the diversity of definitions put forward by theologians in their attempt to explain the phenomenon of stigmatization and the difficulty that both theologians and artists experienced in their attempt in so doing.
