Scared of the God that speaks through Humans.

“With so much religion abroad, holy madness was on the increase: people who lived with so much God that they didn’t know any longer how to be with humans. You came across them in the streets sometimes, chattering to themselves, laughing, crying, their vulnerability vibrating like a halo around them. For the most part they were benign souls, more like hermits. But not all. When God was fermenting inside them they could be very frightening.”
– The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant.
