Christian Mystics : Their Lives and Legacies Throughout the Ages
Christian Mystics tells the story of sixty men and women whose mystical devotion to God transformed the times in which they lived and still affects our present-day search for spiritual meaning. Moving from key figures of the early Christian age to the great mystics of modern times, and giving special emphasis to the great high points of mysticism in the medieval, early modern and Eastern Orthodox traditions, the book describes the lives of visionaries including Clement of Alexandria, Saint Bonaventure, Blaise Pascal and Simone Weil. It reveals the richly diverse expressions that mystical experience has found during two thousand years of Christian history, and shows how it underpins Christian ritual and doctrine as a source of spiritual inspiration for all believers.
