Abstract

A coincidence of bodily and linguistic dislocation (dismemberment, disarticulation) connects Angela of Foligno's mystical experience and its Orphic parallel, the death of Actaeon. We explicate this intersection in order to interpret sanctity as dislocation with help from Foucault, Lyotard, Agamben, Meher Baba, Wittgenstein, Derrida, Pseudo-Dionysius, Bachelard, Levinas, Certeau.
