Book cover
By: (1260-1327)

Meister Eckhart's Sermons provide a fascinating glimpse into the teachings of this medieval mystic and theologian. Translated into English for the first time, these sermons offer profound insights into the nature of God, the soul, and the relationship between humanity and the divine. Eckhart's language is rich and poetic, challenging readers to contemplate the nature of existence and their own spiritual beliefs.

The translation is well-done, capturing the essence of Eckhart's complex ideas while maintaining readability for modern audiences. The footnotes are helpful in providing context and explaining some of the more esoteric references that Eckhart makes. Overall, this collection of sermons is a valuable addition to the library of anyone interested in medieval theology, mysticism, or philosophy.

However, readers should be prepared for the dense and sometimes difficult prose of Meister Eckhart. His sermons can be challenging to follow at times, requiring careful attention and reflection to fully grasp their meaning. But for those willing to put in the effort, the rewards are well worth it.

Overall, Meister Eckhart's Sermons is a thought-provoking and enlightening read, offering readers a glimpse into the mind of one of the most important Christian mystics of the Middle Ages. His teachings are as relevant today as they were in his own time, providing spiritual nourishment and intellectual stimulation for all who seek it.
