medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture
Based on Maureen's suggestion, Iacopone da Todi's Lament of the Virgin might also interest you, and it would give you some Franciscan context. This book might be of help to you as well: Bernard McGinn, The Flowering of Mysticism: Men and Women in the New Mysticism (1200-1350) (New York: The Crossroads Publishing Company, 1998).

How about the Stabat Mater hymn as a source of reflection on Mary's suffering in the passion of Jesus?

A widely-read source and one thatmay behelpfulis the c.1350Meditations on the Life of Christ probably written by Giovanni di Callibus (aka John of Caulibus etc).You could also look at Holly Flora's The Devout Belief of Imagination (2009) and Sarah McNamer's Affective Meditation and the Invention of Medieval Compassion (2010) on this text.

Greetings all,

Can anyone direct me to discussions, especially primary sources, where medieval people are encouraged to envision and meditate on the crucifixion, and/or Marys pain observing it? Im wondering when such forms of meditation became common, and whether they were limited to monasteries (I doubt it, but monks and nuns would perhaps be a primary 'audience'.)
