Meister Eckhart
By

Rating
The Father of German Mysticism Meister Eckhart (1260-1328) was a German theologian, philosopher, professor, and mystic. In his distinguished career, he became a professor of theology at the University of Paris and took a leading pastoral and organizational role in the Dominican Order. Later in his life he was brought before the local Franciscan-led Inquisition and was tried as a heretic. In response Eckhart produced "The Defense" in which he famously defended his writings and refuted their heretical intent. This book collects his most important writings, including his many sermons, as well as his historic response to accusations of heresy. In a modern translation by Raymond B. Blakney, here are the essential writings of Meister Eckhart, the celebrated 14th Century German-born Dominican philosopher, mystic, and spiritual master, including his famous, brilliantly reasoned defense against charges of heresy during a local Franciscan-led Inquisition. Perhaps the most daring and profound Christian philosophy in the history of Western mysticism, the writings and teachings of Meister Eckhart at once challenge and inspire all who wish to deepen their experience of God.
