Dover Publications Christian Mystics of the Middle Ages: An Anthology of Writings

A compilation of classic writings by the great medieval Christian mystics, this book offers inspirational reading for those already well acquainted with mystic teachings as well as readers new to the genre. Written by remarkable individuals who experienced divine contact, these essays describe the nature of ecstasy -- its glimpses of the unseeable and its revelations of the incomprehensible.

These edifying reflections by 13 men and women include "The Beauty of God" and "The Unutterable" by St. Angela of Foligno; Blessed John Ruysbroeck's "The Insatiable Hunger for God"; Blessed Henry Suso on "God's Lovableness"; Richard Rolle's "A Song of Love"; "Abandonment to the Divine Will" by John Tauler; "Contemplation" by the author of The Cloud of Unknowing; Julian of Norwich's "The Soul's True Rest"; St. Catherine of Siena on "The Attainment of Perfect Love"; Walter Hilton's "The Parable of a Devout Pilgrim"; "The Love of God in Purgatory" by St. Teresa; St. Catherine of Genoa's "A Vision of Hell"; "Spiritual Wisdom" by St. John of the Cross; and St. Francis de Sales on "Abandonment to God's Pleasure."
