The growth of mysticism by Bernard McGinn( Book )
35 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and held by 624 libraries worldwide
"Bernard McGinn, considered by experts to be the best scholar of Western Christian mysticism in the world, became known far beyond academia with the 1991 publication of The Foundations of Mysticism: Origins to the Fifth Century. The initial volume in a four-volume series was greeted with immediate and unprecedented critical praise." "This second volume, The Growth of Mysticism, will also stand on its own as a towering achievement, taking up the story from 500 to 1200 CE. It is the fascinating history of early medieval mysticism when monasticism was the dominant religious and educational institution of the new post-Roman world. It brings to life such visionaries as Gregory the Great, John Scottus Eriugena, Bernard of Clairvaux, and many others. Filled with knowledge and wisdom, The Growth of Mysticism is grounded in the highest scholarship."--Jacket

The mystical thought of Meister Eckhart : the man from whom God hid nothing by Bernard McGinn( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and Polish and held by 489 libraries worldwide
"Centuries after his work as a preacher, philosopher, and spiritual guide, Meister Eckhart remains one of the most widely-read mystics of the Western tradition. Yet as he has come to be studied more closely, a number of different Eckharts have emerged. Is he prophet of the remote God known only in radical negation and darkness, or messenger to the intimate God of Christ born in the human soul? Are his evocative German sermons the highest expression of his mystical vision, or do we find the key to his vision in the more scholastic, seemingly drier Latin works? For the first time, Bernard McGinn brings together in one volume the fruition of decades of reflection on these questions, offering a view of Eckhart that weaves together his strands as preacher, philosopher, and theologian."--Jacket

Mystical union in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam : an ecumenical dialogue by Moshe Idel( Book )
14 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in English and held by 350 libraries worldwide
Mysticism is a tricky subject for serious academic inquiry. The difficulty of making an intellectual argument about the ineffable is the most immediate obstacle. This is further complicated by the fact that many who are interested in the subject like to argue that all mystics experience a universal union with the ultimate, a proposition that is hard to reconcile with a scholarly concern for specific context, language and sources. Especially in the early part of the 20th century, under the influence of Evelyn Underhill, students of mysticism tended to place all interpretations into a pre-articulated framework of "the mystic way."--Http:// (Sep. 5, 2014)
Thomas Aquinas's Summa theologiae : a biography by Bernard McGinn( Book )
11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 326 libraries worldwide
This concise book tells the story of the most important theological work of the Middle Ages, the vast Summa theologiae of Thomas Aquinas, which holds a unique place in Western religion and philosophy. Written between 1266 and 1273, the Summa was conceived by Aquinas as an instructional guide for teachers and novices and a compendium of all the approved teachings of the Catholic Church. It synthesizes an astonishing range of scholarship, covering hundreds of topics and containing more than a million and a half words--and was still unfinished at the time of Aquinas's death. Here, Bernard McGinn, one of today's most acclaimed scholars of medieval Christianity, vividly describes the world that shaped Aquinas, then turns to the Dominican friar's life and career, examining Aquinas's reasons for writing his masterpiece, its subject matter, and the novel way he organized it. McGinn gives readers a brief tour of the Summa itself, and then discusses its reception over the past seven hundred years. He looks at the influence of the Summa on such giants of medieval Christendom as Meister Eckhart, its ridicule during the Enlightenment, the rise and fall of Neothomism in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the role of the Summa in the post-Vatican II church, and the book's enduring relevance today
