Soft cover. viii, 350 pp. Bruise to spine foot, else fine, clean, and tight. Meister Eckhart, thirteenth century Dominican theologian and the greatest of German mystics, speaks to us with a new voice of this faithful and authoritative translation by M. O'C. Walshe. Eckhart was regarded as the most learned scholar of his time, people flocked to hear him preach and his influence on contemporary theology was considerable. However, his declaration as a heretic has meant that his spiritual message has been lost to us for centuries. Today, his teachings are being re-discovered by a new generation of spiritual seekers following his 'wayless way' which bridges East and West.
