God Within Summary

God Within: The Mystical Tradition of Northern Europe by Professor Oliver Davies

One of the greatest flowerings of Christian mysticism took place in Northern Europe during the Middle Ages. God Within identifies the North European tradition as one based on a sense of inwardness. The author places the tradition within the general context of the medieval Church's spirituality, showing how it is distinctive from other forms of mysticism. Finally, he draws out what is of universal value in the Northern mystics, and argues that their insights are immediately relevant to us today. A new edition of a classic book which brought a neglected spiritual tradition to life and conveyed the essence of the work of writers who have a particular resonance for contemporary Christians and `seekers': Jan van Ruusbroec, Johannes Tauler, Henry Suso and Walter Hilton as well as more familiar figures such as Meister Eckhart and Julian of Norwich.
