Mystical Anthropology

Full Product Description

Crucial for the correct understanding of mystical literature is the specific view of the mystical authors of the Low Countries on the a "structurea (TM) of the human person, which is fundamentally different from the anthropology which is commonly accepted since the late medieval/early modern period. This book explores the most important mystical authors and texts from the Low Countries including: William of Saint-Thierry, Hadewijch, Beatrice of Nazareth, Margaret Porete, Jan van Ruusbroec, Jan van Leeuwen, Willem Jordaens, Hendrik Herp, Arnhem Mystical Sermons, Evangelical Pearl. The most important aspects of mystical anthropology are discussed: the spiritual nature of the soul, the inner-most being of the soul, the faculties, the senses, and crucial metaphors which were used to explain the relationship of God and the human person. Two contributions explicitly connect the anthropology of the mystics to contemporary thought. This book offers a solid and yet accessible overview for those interested in theology, philosophy, history, medieval literature.
