The Pleasure of Discernment

Marguerite de Navarre as Theologian

Carol Thysell

Oxford Studies in Historical Theology

In this innovative study, Carol Thysell provides an in-depth examination of Marguerite de Navarre's Heptameron. While this collection of tales is traditionally considered to be secular in nature, Thysell argues that Marguerite de Navarre used it as a vehicle for a constructive theological program.
