Selections from Meister Eckhart: The essential commentaries, treatises and defense (Paulist Press, 1981) and Meister Eckhart: Teacher and preacher (Paulist Press, 1986). The thought of Eckhart, Dominican philosopher and spiritual master, is among the most daring and difficult in the history of Western mysticism. He is noted for his doctrines of detachment, the return of the soul to God, and the birth of the Son in the soul. Each selection has an introduction providing the listener with a context for these insights from the past.
