Reviews and endorsements

"The Harvest of Mysticism is a tour de force study of medieval German mysticism from Thomas Aquinas and his master, Albert the Great, to Cardinal Nicholas of Cusa. This volume's importance rests not only in its comprehensive study of the fertile period which produced Meister Eckhart, John Tauler, and Henri Suso, but in its lucid discussion of the 'problem' of mysticism as it comes to the fore in this era. A monumental achievement both in its historical sweep and for its conceptual rigor."
Lawrence S. Cunningham, John A. O'Brien professor of theology, University of Notre Dame
