Bodily practices played an important role in medieval devotion, some particularly associated with female believers. One need only think of how devout women kissed manuscripts and rosaries, Beguines performed series of prostrations and genuflections, and nuns constructed own meditational processions through their convents. Some mystics are represented as engaging in more extreme bodily performances. For instance, according to her vita, thirteenth-century beguine Elizabeth of Spalbeek imitated Christ’s Passion in public, resulting in stigmata erupting on her body.
