John J. Hartman

This is a study of Alu, a middle-aged Moroccan-born follower of a popular Moroccan Jewish saint. The woman became a popular healer after the saint revealed himself to her in a series of dreams and visions. The verbatim text of her self-narrative is presented and analyzed in two ways. First, a psychocultural explanation is given. It is based on the idea of the culturally constituted image of the saint as a personal symbol used to cope with the recollection of traumatic events. Purity versus impurity, loss versus compensation, and femaleness versus maleness are discussed as this woman's crucial life themes. Second, the text is re-analyzed in terms of the Cinderella fairy tale, which the authors claim serves as a model for Alu in articulating or remolding her experiences.
