About the Author:

Bernard McGinn is the Naomi Shenstone Donnelley Professor Emeritus in the Divinity School of the University of Chicago. He is the author of Anti-Christ, Early Christian Mystics, The Essential Writings of Christian Mysticism, and The Mystical Thought of Meister Eckhart. He lives in Chicago.

From Library Journal:

This second of a projected four volumes on the history of mysticism in Western Christianity, by which the author means Roman and later also Protestant mysticism, covers the period from A.D. 500 to 1200. (The first volume, The Foundations of Mysticism, Crossroad, 1991, covers the period from the Apostolic Age to about A.D. 500.) Rather than including survey-style all the writers of the period, McGinn thoroughly discusses outstanding theoreticians: Gregory the Great, John Scottus Eriugena, Bernard of Clairvaux, William of St. Thierry, and Hugh of St. Victor. But this approach can make historical trends hard to discern. A case in point: there is little discussion of the early, substantial impact of Islamic mysticism on Western Christianity. This rather scholarly text is recommended for academic libraries and public libraries with strong religion collections.
