The culmination of de Certeau's lifelong engagement with the human sciences, this volume is both an analysis of Christian mysticism during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and an application of this influential scholar's transdisciplinary historiography.

From the Back Cover:

'In this book the topics of 'the everyday, ' 'belief, ' what might be called 'the counter-historical, ' and 'the politics of language' are coordinated and brought to bear upon a fascinating historical phenomenon, early modern mysticism, to yield profound insights into the 'mystical' underside of our own post-religious experience of the world, nature, and history.' - Hayden White, University of California, Santa Cruz
