Publisher Comments:

Named "The Prince of Mystics" by Leo XIII, Bonaventure (1217-1274), friar and professor at the University of Paris, was considered a great spiritual master in his own lifetime.

Synopsis:

The most in-depth and scholarly panorama of Western spirituality ever attempted!

In one series, the original writings of the universally acknowledged teachers of the Catholic, Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, Jewish, Islamic and Native American traditions have been critically selected, translated and introduced by internationally recognized scholars and spiritual leaders.

The texts are first-rate, and the introductions are informative and reliable. The books will be a welcome addition to the bookshelf of every literate religious persons". — The Christian Century

Synopsis:

'But if you wish to know how these things come about ask grace not instruction, desire not understanding, the groaning of prayer not diligent reading, the Spouse not the teacher, God not man, darkness not clarity, not light but the fire that totally enflames and carries us into God by ecstatic unctions and burning affections. This fire is God and his furnace is in Jerusalem...' --Bonaventure, 1217-1274
