       Belonging to the early thirteenth century, Hadewijch brings us a spiritual message of extraordinary power. She was endowed in no less degree than st. teresa of avila with the gifts of visionary mysticism and literary genius. She felt herself strongly a woman as can be ssen from her choosing to join the womens movement of her day, that of the beguines, who dedicated themselves to a life of true spirituality without taking the veil.
Hadewijch understood that she was called to communicate to others the profound knowledge of the things of God granted to her in her mystical life. She directed her apostolate to some younger Beguines, and nearly all her writing, both prose and poetry, were intended for them. She mentions other spiritual friends, some in distant countries. Her experiences and her message, however, remained hidden; she attained to no celebrity among her contemporaries. The way of immediate fame was for other women mystics. St. Hildegard, the visionary and writer, enjoyed high reputation throughout Europe and corresponded with the Pope, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, and crowned heads. Jadewijch's contemporary St. Lutgard was widely know for her visions of the Sacret Heart, which won her the friendship of persons like the Master General of the Dominican Order and Duchess Marie Brabant, and after her death made her tomb a place of pilgrimage. Where Hadewijch was buried, however, no one knows, and her writings, after passing through the hands of John of Ruusbroec and his circle, were lost to sight until the late nineteenth century.
