In a process akin to today's 'creative' thinking, or 'cognition', this discipline recognizes the essential roles of imagination and emotion in meditation. Deriving examples from a variety of late antique and medieval sources, with excursions into modern architectural memorials, this study emphasizes meditation as an act of literary composition or invention, the techniques of which notably involved both words and the making of mental 'pictures' for thinking and composing."--Jacket." ;
