An introduction to the writing and preaching of the greatest medieval European mystic.
Meister Eckhart (1260–1327), a German Dominican whose preaching was immensely popular in his own time, was one of the greatest medieval European mystics, and his writings helped build the foundation of the Western mystical tradition. This important introduction to his writing and preaching contains rich selections from his sermons, treatises, and sayings, as well as Table Talk, the records of his informal advice to his spiritual children.
This book was previously published under the title Meister Eckhart, from Whom God Hid Nothing: Sermons, Writings, and Sayings.
