Paulist Press Late Medieval Mysticism of the Low Countries (Classics of Western Spirituality)

Late Medieval Mysticism of the Low Countries covers the era from 1381 to the proximate beginnings of the Reformation and presents several texts that until now have not appeared in English. The spiritual tradition of the Low Countries, primarily written in Dutch or Flemish, must rank together with the German School as the most important vernacular tradition in late medieval Europe. While this tradition is undoubtedly more obscure among readers and scholars, its influence on the Christianity in Medieval Europe and what later emerged is critical. Here are excerpts from all major voices after the death of Jan van Ruusbroec in 1381.

About the Classics in Western Spirituality series
In one series, the original writings of the universally acknowledged teachers of Catholic, Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, and Jewish traditions have been critically selected, translated, and introduced by internationally recognized scholars and spiritual leaders. This series provides a true primary resource to both the academy and the church through its presentation of ancient and at times obscure texts whose broad ecumenical scope is sure to help generate discussion about important issues in spirituality and theology.

An outstanding overview of an area of Christian history and thought not widely known by parishioners in the pews. Yet a time of provocative Christian thinking. I recommend it without hesitation.
