Mysticism; a study in the nature and development of man's spiritual consciousness by Evelyn Underhill( Book )

238 editions published between 1911 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 3,130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An in-depth and comprehensive exploration of the subject of mysticism. 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 manifestations from ecstasy and rapture to the dark night of the soul. Rounding out the book are a useful appendix, an exhaustive bibliography and an index. The book is thoroughly documented with material drawn from such great mystics as St. Teresa of Avila, Meister Eckhart and St. John of the Cross

A reprint of Evelyn Underhill's timeless study on the the nature and principles of worship and the main forms in which they find expression in Christianity.

More than any other spiritual writer, the author brought mysticism from the cloistered life of the monastery to the everyday lives of ordinary people.

The vision of God by Nicholas( Book )

6 editions published between 1928 and 1978 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for his deeply mystical writings about Christianity, Nicholas of Cusa wrote this, his most popular work, against a backdrop of widespread Church corruption. God, he believed, is found in all things, and thus cannot be perceived by man's senses and intellect alone. The path to ultimate knowledge, then, begins in recognizing our own ignorance. Deeply influenced by Saint Augustine, Nicholas mixes the metaphysical with the personal to create a deeply felt work, first published in 1453, designed to restore faith in even the most jaded

23 editions published between 1934 and 1991 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this little book, which is based upon the principal articles of the Nicene Creed, I have tried to suggest to the modern Christian how close the connection is between the great doctrines of his religion and that "inner life" which is too often regarded as a more spiritual alternative to orthodoxy: how rich and splendid is the Christian account of reality, and how much food it has to offer to the contemplative soul. - Preface
