Reading the Mystics

Very rich insights here on the mystical life from Professor Bernard McGinn, the word’s preeminent historian of western Christian mysticism who has written a multi-volume history of Christian mysticism, continuing the project with two recent publications studying the historical development of Christian mysticism with Mysticism in the Reformation and Mysticism in the Golden Age of Spain. For many years Dr. McGinn taught at the University of Chicago Divinity School and continues his writing and research.

One thought on “Reading the Mystics

  1. Bernard McGinn and I have been corresponding for some time. He is not only the foremost scholar of Christian mysticism, but also extremely knowledgeable about the Kabbalah of Judaism and Sufism of Islam. I have been trying to get him to be just as interested in the mystics of Hinduism and Buddhism.
