  • Agents of uncertaintyby John Danvers

    Editions Rodopi 2012; US$ 43.00

    Through an analysis of many different examples, Danvers articulates a new way of thinking about mysticism and scepticism, not as opposite poles of the philosophical spectrum, but as two fields of enquiry with overlapping aims and methods. Prompted by a deep sense of wonder at being alive, many mystics and sceptics, like the Buddha, practice disciplines... more...

  • A Christian Woman's Secretby Lilian Staveley

    World Wisdom 2009; US$ 9.99

    Most of us, seeing a respectable lady shopping in London?s Bond Street, searching, let us say, for a sensible pair of new shoes, are hardly likely to suspect that we are looking at a God-intoxicated woman, comparable in her inner nature to a St. Francis of Assisi. So it was with the little-known Protestant Lilian Staveley, one of the most remarkable... more...

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2013; US$ 89.32

    Nach den Anfangswirren des ersten Jahrhunderts musste sich das frühe Christentum im zweiten Jahrhundert neuen Herausforderungen stellen.

  • The Enigma of the Oceanic Feelingby William B. Parsons

    Oxford University Press, USA 1999; US$ 109.99

    This study examines the history of the psychoanalytic theory of mysticism, starting with the seminal correspondence between Freud and Romain Rolland concerning the concept of "oceanic feeling."

  • Exploring Lost Dimensions in Christian Mysticismby Louise Nelstrop; Simon D. Podmore

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 104.95

    ‘Mystical theology’ has developed through a range of meanings, from the hidden dimensions of divine significance in the community’s interpretation of its scriptures to the much later ‘science’ of the soul’s ascent into communion with God. Raising fundamental matters of epistemology, representation, metaphysics, and divine... more...
