Product Description

Along with Meister Eckhart and Henry Suso, Johannes Tauler was one of the most influential German mystical writers of the fourteenth century. Born in Strasbourg, he spent virtually all of his life there working as a mendicant preacher in the Order of Preachers. A product of the newly ascendant merchant class, he attempted to address its concern for a practical, active spirituality while being true to the apophatic tradition that he saw in Eckhart. If Eckhart can be called the greatest theoretician of the spiritual life of the fourteenth century Europe, then Tauler was certainly the one who most effectively interpreted Eckhart's message to a broader audience, addinga measure of balance and clarity lacking in his master.
Tauler's sermon were among the most influential spiritual writigs of the late middle ages, esteemed in their own day by their hearers and later by both Catholics and Protestants. This translation of selected sermons by Maria Shrady captures the brilliance and perspicuity that has made Tauler famous.
