Madame Guyon (Jeanne-Marie Bouvier de la Motte-Guyon) (b. 18 April 1648, d. 9 June 1717) was a French mystic, who preached and practiced semi-quietism, and by her writings exerted influence in Germany on Tersteegen, Gottfried Arnold, the Moravian Brethren, and also on pietistically inclined Mennonite circles. Her most read books were Leben heiliger Seelen and Heilige Liebe Gottes mit Sinnbildern. The latter, published in 1717, translated from the French by Tersteegen and published in 1751 at Mühlheim a.d. Ruhr, was reprinted in 1828 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
