Gertrud Von Helfta (1252-1302).

(...) this passage came into my mind: "He who loves me will keep my word; and my Father will love him, and we shall come to him and make our dwelling with him." Then my earthly heart in me felt that you had come and were present. Buber, Ecstatic Confessions, P.64.

(...) For four whole days, in the early morning, at the most suitable hour, you let flow into me always one part of the discourse, so clearly and gracefully that I could write what I had previously not thought, without any effort, like something long held in memory. Ibid., P.65.
