Evelyn Linderhill


PUBLISHED: 1st October 1990
ISBN: 9780385416313
ANNOTATION:
First published in 1911, Mysticism remains "the "classic in its field and was lauded by "The Princeton Theological "Review as "brilliantly written (and) illuminated with numerous well-chosen extracts ... used with exquisite skill." "Mysticism "makes an in-depth and comprehensive exploration of its subject. Part One examines "The Mystic Fact," explaining the relation of mysticism to vitalism, to psychology, to theology, to symbolism, and to magic. Part Two, "The Mystic Way," explores the awakening, purification, and illumination of the self; discusses voices and visions; and delves into manifestatioins from ecstasty and rapture to the dark night of the soul. Rounding out the book are a useful Appendix, an exhaustive Bibliography, and an Index. "Mysticism "is thoroughly documented with material drawn from such great mystics as St. Teresa of Avila, Meister Eckhart, and St. John of the Cross, and this new Image Classic features a Foreword by Ira Progoff, translator of "Cloud Unknowing "and director of Dialogue House in New York City.
