Translated by Clifton Wolters
In the fourteenth century there was a great flourishing of religious writings in English, both orthodox and heretical. Many of these works focused on Christ's Passion and humanity, whereas
The Cloud of Unknowing
describes an abstract, transcendent God beyond human knowledge and human language. Drawing upon radically different traditions, it is a rich work full of intriguing contradictions that speaks to us with liveliness and wit even today. The unknown author, thought to be a priest and Carthusian monk, is also believed to have written the other three works in this volume:
The Mystical Theology of Saint Denis,
The Book of Privy Counseling, and
An Epistle on Prayer, which, together with
The Cloud of Unknowing, are the four texts at the core of medieval mystical theology. 208 Pages, Paperback
