"These letters of Jordan to Diana are as fresh today as when they were written, filled with a deep and human love that is fully integrated into their relationship with God. Vann's introduction is brilliantly perceptive."
First published in 1960, this study and translation (from the original Latin) of the letters of Jordan of Saxony (c. 1190-1237), a Dominican friar, to Diana d'Andalò (1200-1236), a cloistered Dominican nun, brings to life an extraordinary friendship, forged in their shared love of God. The Dominican Nuns of Summit have reprinted this Dominican classic in honor of the 800th anniversary of the first foundation of Dominican Nuns at Prouilhe, France.
