University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines Clemens Brentano’s transcriptions of Anna Katharina Emmerick’s visions. She was a mystic whose raptures Brentano transcribed in order to prove her sanctity. This chapter contends that Emmerick’s visions share some important aspects of the fairy-tale genre. This chapter does not claim that this mystic’s oral visions are false; it aims to stress the similar narrative structures.

Keywords:   Brentano, Anna Katharina Emmerick, mysticism, raptures, fairy tales
