Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The mystical richness of Christian history is interwoven with the lives of saints, mystics, martyrs, and visionaries in the exquisitely designed Christian Mysticism — the second book in Hyperion's Mystical Library, a series that explores the mysterious within our major religious traditions. In Christian Mysticism, full-color illustrations are juxtaposed with insightful, lyrical prose.

Christian Mysticism takes readers through the history of the Christian religions, starting with the first mystic — Jesus Christ — and chronicles the development of mysticism in the lives of saints who were seized by visions, performed miracles, and were tortured and martyred in the name of Christ. Sections include:

The Women: Mary and Mary Magdalene as visionaries and the miracles of Marian apparitions are rediscovered.

Martyrs, Confessors, and Ascetics: A history of the beginnings of the Christian mystical tradition.

Monastic Enclosures: Examines the mystical pursuits followed within the walled enclosures of monasteries.

A beautiful history of the Christian quest for inner transformation, Christian Mysticism will appeal deeply to all modern Christians following their own spiritual quests.
