Full Description


This is primarily a study of selfhood in the vernacular works of Walter Hilton, those associated with "The Cloud of Unknowing" and Julian of Norwich. The three authors show differing governing paradigms for their presentation of the contemplative self. This comprehensive work is part of an emerging movement in the study of the English mystics, which incorporates critical theory and postmodern theological perspectives in close readings of mystical texts.
