About the Author:

Walter Hilton (d. 1396) was an English Augustinian mystic. He attended Cambridge University, and at some point, probably before 1386, he rejected the legal and administrative career available to him and retired from the world as a hermit. Later he decided that his true vocation was not to the heremitic life, but to a religious order. According to manuscript tradition, Hilton died as an Augustinian Canon Regular in the priory of St. Peter at Thurgarton in Nottinghamshire. His spiritual writings were widely influential during the fifteenth century in England.
