Unspoken Word: Negative Theology in Meister Eckhart's German Sermons

by Bruce Milem
 
This detailed study of four sermons by the 13th-century Dominican friar Meister Eckhart shows how he used complex verbal images and wordplay to transmit the paradox that God is 'both distinct and indistinct from ordinary things, including the soul'. Milem focuses in particular on Eckhart's concerns that the divine nature of God could not be described with language.
