In fourteenth-century England an anonymous monk wrote an extraordinary text illuminating the life of contemplative devotion and the drama of the souls union with God. Precariously heretical in its day, it became a classic of Christian mystical thought.

Dr. Ira Progoffs brilliant new translation and commentary illustrate The Cloud of Unknowings ongoing relevance. Dr. Progoff reveals a bridge spanning the perilous abyss between modern psychologys self-conscious analytic thought and the pressing spiritual needs of modern man.
