A specialised and heavily detailed analysis of the place of nuptial rituals and brides in the culture and religion of Germany between the 12th and 17th centuries. Keller focuses in particular on the increasingly sexual view of religious women as the daughters of God and the wives of Christ in the secular and religious literature in medieval Germany.

Erotic, sexual and marital images belong to the fundamental stock of human symbols for commitment and union as well as for the endangering of such a union. Their inexhaustible potential has shaped religious and cultural history, giving rise to rich artistic creations during the Christian Middle Ages. Such pictorial and textual sources - here drawn mainly from German secular and religious literature between the 12th and the 17th centuries - form a veritable archive of gender history. What from a Christian point of view had been presented as a principal purpose of human existence - being God s free daughter, His Son s bride - took on an increasingly sexual character and became the particular domain of religious women. Beginning with this eroticized concept of God, this book examines its multiple implications: for the texts themselves as well as their authors and readers, for the relationship with a transcendent partner, and for the secular experience of marriage. After the initial theoretical groundwork, a general survey exemplifying brides of God precedes a detailed study of prominent individuals. My Secret is Mine thus invites very diverse literary brides and their beloveds to shed some light on their experience of that inexpressible, and yet immensely productive, promise of union with love itself.
