              These emblems of Divine Love connect spiritual drawings with poems to reveal the depths of God's love. In her poems, Jeanne Guyon (1648-1717) writes an open conversation with God, while D'Othon Vaenius' (1556-1629) beautiful engravings portray divine love engaging with the human ...soul. The artist D'Othon Vaenius published these famous and popular engravings in 1615. Vaenius was a leading art teacher in Antwerp and had Peter Paul Rubens among his students.

Jeanne Guyon writes about her relationship with God in a poem from this book. -Flow, divine water, through the mouth of my heart; I find in you all that I desire, You quench my thirst.

Fire all divine, source of all fruitfulness, I taste in you unspeakable goodness.- The emblems of D'Othon Vaenius and Jeanne Guyon offer a detailed visualization to us of what Divine Love would feel and look like.

In this first English translation of this book, these emblems of divine love become available to post-modern readers. These emblems cr
