Product Description

Originally written in Middle English by an unknown mystic of the 14th century, THE CLOUD OF UNKNOWING represents the first expression in our own tongue of the soul's quest for God. A literary work of great beauty in both its style and its message, it offers a practical guide in the path of contemplation. The author explains how all thoughts and concepts must be buried beneath a "cloud of forgetting," while our love must rise toward God hidden in the "cloud of unknowing."

Publisher's Description

William Johnston--an authority on fourteenth century spirituality and specifically on the writings of this unknown author--provides a substantive and accessible introduction detailing what is known about the history of this text and its relevance throughout the ages. Also included here is the author's other principal work, The Book of Privy Counseling--a short and moving text on the way to enlightenment through a total loss of self and consciousness only of the divine.

Author Bio

    This is profound literature of the greatest magnitude. If everyone in the kingdom of Godwere to read this, the world would change. The hearts of men would look to a better lifeand secure a much better future in their huntfor simplistic and full way of living.
