Baron von Hugel analyzed Christianity into three dimensions: the institutional, the theological, and the mystical. Clearly the most neglected of the three by mass media is the mystical. Robert Imperato's Early and Medieval Christian Spirituality intends to introduce the Christian reader to this rich vein of Christian thought on spiritual experience. This is not Christianity for those seeking to answer the political problems of the day. It is rather a sampling of the mystical wealth of Christian history. This work contains summaries of key authors as well as an anthology of their thought.
