Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

William Johnston--an authority on fourteenth century spirituality and specifically on the writings of this unknown author--provides a substantive and accessible introduction detailing what is known about the history of this text and its relevance throughout the ages. Also included here is the author's other principal work, The Book of Privy Counseling--a short and moving text on the way to enlightenment through a total loss of self and consciousness only of the divine.

Synopsis:

Written by an unknown mystic of the 14th century, The Cloud of Unknowing represents the first expression in English of the soul's quest for God. This is a relevant text for today's spirituality, a literary work of great beauty in style and message.

About the Author
