Meister Eckhart was a fourteenth century Dominican monk. Considered a forerunner to the Reformation, he was an established theologian, and as a result had a profound impact upon medieval scholasticism mostly through his sermons. Meister Eckhart's Sermons contains some of his short sermons. The sermons themselves are in relatively plain English. In them, Eckhart flirts with some controversial topics. He describes the soul as "laying hold" of God in a mystical manner, so that there is "no distinction" between God and the soul. Indeed, some of his more radical teachings were eventually condemned by a papal council as heretical. But Eckhart does illustrate a way to synthesize one's religious belief with one's philosophy. Interesting and demanding, Meister Eckhart's Sermons will challenge a person's conception of God and religion. -Tim Perrine, CCEL Staff Writer

PRODUCT DETAIL

Meister Eckhart

Born in Hochheim near Gotha, Meister Eckhart was a German Dominican mystic whose central concern was the relation of the soul to God. He regarded "the innermost essence of the soul as something uncreated, not only "like' God in a creaturely resemblance, but truly "one' with God" (Bernard McGinn, Meister Eckhart). Eckhart's thinking offended orthodox sensibilities as pantheistic, and he was accused of heretical teachings by the archbishop of Cologne. Two years after his death, Eckhart's writings were condemned by Pope John XXII. Nevertheless, Eckhart's teaching influenced later religious mysticism and speculative philosophy.
