A pesar de ello, y tras su muerte, este libro tuvo tan enorme difusión que, en los últimos siglos de los angeles Edad Media, traspasó fronteras geográficas y lingüísticas como pocos textos de su época, traduciéndose del francés (o del possible unique picardo) al latín, al inglés y al italiano. Escrito con forma de un diálogo entre personificaciones alegóricas, y en el marco de las formas de expresión de los angeles literatura cortés, El espejo de las almas simples es una obra de teología que enraíza en las corrientes de l. a. llamada «mística femenina» del siglo XIII y cuyos contenidos se vinculan estrechamente al pensamiento del maestro Eckhart, quien casi con seguridad lo conoció y leyó. El libro, caído tras el siglo XVI en el olvido, fue redescubierto, y con él su autora, en pleno siglo XX. Desde entonces se reconoce en esta obra uno de los grandes hitos de l. a. literatura mística occidental.
