Abstract

Religious conversion, following Bernard Lonergan, is deeply mystical: "other worldly falling in love," "total, [unconditional] and permanent self-surrender." Julian of Norwich and Ignatius of Loyola both give, albeit in quite different language, an experiential and imagination rich accounts of religious conversion. For Julian, this is the "oneing" of the soul to God; for Ignatius, the contemplation which makes "beings in love."
