You Looked at Me Summary

You Looked at Me: The Spiritual Testimony of Claudine Moine by Claudine Moine

A seventeenth-century French seamstress, Claudine Moine was a refugee from the Thirty Years War, and lived in Paris during the period in which she wrote this profoundly rich autobiographical account of her spiritual development, a work of extraordinary spiritual and theological richness. Precisely, and under obedience to her spiritual director, she relates a detailed narrative of God's involvement in her life, written principally in the three years from 1652 to 1655. The text is of a quality which compares to such works as The Cloud of Unknowing, Julian of Norwich's Revelations of Divine Love or The Life of Saint Theresa of Avila, and perhaps surpasses them in certain areas of interest to the historian.
