  • By Stephen S. J. Fields
  • By Anselm Stolz
  • By Aidan Williams
Description: First published in 1938, this book made a significant contribution to the scholarship on mysticism by approaching the problems of mysticism from the theological angle adopted by the church fathers and medieval scholastics.
