(p.1) Introduction
On Becoming God

Ben Morgan

Fordham University Press

The introduction sets out the methodological shifts necessary for a twenty-first-century reader to begin making sense of the central problem with which the book is concerned, namely what it might mean for a woman religious in a fourteenth-century anonymous text to declare that she has “become God.” The shifts include fundamental changes in the way questions of personal identity, sexual difference and religious traditions are conceptualized.

Keywords:   Sister Catherine treatise (Schwester Katrei), agency, sexual difference, religious vocabulary, Mitsein, history of the self, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett
