Theologia Germanica

Book cover

Theologia Germanica is a thought-provoking and enlightening spiritual text that explores the nature of God, the soul, and the human experience. Written by an anonymous author in the 14th century, this book offers deep insights into the Christian faith and the quest for spiritual enlightenment.

The author delves into the idea of the "inner man," or the divine spark within each person that connects them to God. Through a series of meditations and reflections, the text encourages readers to cultivate a deep sense of inner peace, humility, and love for God and others.

One of the most compelling aspects of Theologia Germanica is its emphasis on the importance of self-examination and personal transformation. The author argues that true spiritual growth requires a willingness to confront one's own sinfulness and shortcomings, and to strive for a deeper connection with God.

Overall, Theologia Germanica is a powerful and profoundly moving work that offers timeless wisdom for spiritual seekers of all backgrounds. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in exploring the depths of their faith and seeking a closer relationship with the divine.

Book Description:
This short, anonymous work is thought to have been written in the 1300s by a member of the lay-religious group called ‘The Friends of God.’ Its central teaching is that humans can become one with God by living a holy, selfless life in which our will is subsumed into God’s, of which Christ is the ultimate example. Martin Luther discovered, named, and published Theologia Germanica in 1516, declaring that, "Next to the Bible and St. Augustine, no book has ever come into my hands from which I have learnt more of God and Christ, and man and all things that are."
