    • Bernard McGinn is the foremost writer on Christian mysticism of the 20th century and, perhaps, of all times. His four volume works on 'The Presence of God' - although lengthy reading - are both enjoyable and informative. Through our many emails, I also consider him a friend."The Flowering of Mysticism /New Mysticism - 1200–1350" is one of the books in the primary bibliography of my free ebook on comparative mysticism" at suprarational/gail2012.pdf and essential for anyone interested in the beg [...]


    • My eyes opened to the treatment and contribution of women, such as Mechthild, to Christian mysticism in the 13th-century. Better known to me in the High Middle Ages were St. Francis and Bonaventure. Encountering God, devotion to the stigmata, vows of poverty, passion, the mystery of Christ, and rapture gave form to the mysticism of this time and place. You should love the nothing,You should flee the something,You should stand alongAnd should go to no one. - Mechthild (243)


    • A work in progress - four of a projected six volumes have been published - this is the best available overview and study of Western Christian mysticism. So far, McGinn has covered, in historical sequence, from the beginnings of Christianity (and older influences on early Christianity) through the fifteenth century.


    • Bernard McGinn is just the best. This covers Western Christian mysticism from 1200-1350, so McGinn has opportunity to look at some women mystics in more detail. Which he does.
