Canciones entre el alma y el esposo of Juan de la Cruz: a hermeneutical interpretation
Juan de la Cruz (St. John of the Cross) has been a major influence on Catholic thought for centuries. This important new work in English presents a Hermeneutical framework within which an interpretation of Juan de la Cruz's C_ntico may be undertaken. Dr. Perrin calls this framework a Global Hermeneutical Method. The phenomenological hermeneutics of Paul Ricoeur are used to construct this framework. Ricoeur's phenomenological hermeneutics of texts is based on a theory of mimesis as well as other congruent methodologies. A Hermeneutical approach to the Cantico does not merely ask the question, _What does the text mean?_ but also asks, _What does the text mean for the reader today?_
