Joinville, in his Memoirs of St. Louis, tells us of a woman who, in the crusade headed by that king, was seen carrying in her right hand a porringer of fire, and in her left a bottle of water. With the fire, Joinville says, she wished to burn paradise, with the water to drown hell, so that none might do good for the reward of the one, nor avoid evil from fear of the other, since every good ought to be done from the perfect and sincere love which man owes to his Creator, who is the supreme good.
