Annotation:  This article is devoted to the 2-parts structure of the religious consciousness and demonstrates such a structure on the material of the writings, belonging to German women-Dominicans from the fourteenth century. The first chapter describes this mental structure as it was understood by the medieval nuns themselves (topic of the “introjection”). The second chapter gives an explanation for this phenomenon in scientific concepts and terms (theory of “objectification”). The research is aimed to find a common approach to the mentioned above 2-parts structure and to indicate its intrinsic logic without any attraction of religious teachings, created post factum.

Keywords:  mysticism, scholasticism, transcription of the experience, intrinsic attributive analogy, subsistence, mystical unity with God.
