'A pure, clean heart is the temple of God, where the eternal God ever dwelleth in truth, when all that is unlike Him has been driven out.'
'Johannes Tauler, Sermons'
By Johannes Tauler (Author), Maria Shrady (Translator), Josef Schmidt (Introduction)
One of the most influential German mystical writers of the 14th century, Johannes Tauler (c. 1300-1361) spent his life as a mendicant preacher in the Order of Preachers. These selected sermons show Tauler's emphasis on the via negativa together with his insistence on the importance of cataphatic mysticism and the merits of an active life.
