In addition to chronicling St. John's life story, the book probes the saint's rigorous life of contemplation and his classic writings on such subjects as union with God and the "dark night of the soul." Herrera clarifies St. John's understanding of the mystical experience, paying particular attention to the notion of detachment and the recurring motifs of darkness, flame, and ascent in John's writings. His careful analysis of St. John's thought is enriched with examples from philosophy, psychology, literature, spirituality, and art--material not usually found in such a study. The book concludes by exploring St. John's relevance to contemporary spirituality.
Offering fresh insight into one of the church's most cherished figures, and including Herrera's own translations of some of St. John's poems, Silent Music will interest students of Roman Catholicism, Spanish history, spirituality, and mysticism.
