873 Mechthild is an asteroid orbiting the Sun named after the celebrated Christian medieval mystic Mechthild of Magdeburg c. 1207 – c. 1282/1294).
Machtild of Magdeburg’s The Flowing Light of Divinity described her visions of God. Her criticism of church dignitaries and religious laxity along with her theological ideas made her controversial. Some wanted to burn her writings possibly because she was a woman writing about God, and she wrote in vernacular German. Her book is available on Amazon.
