Overview

Adornment of the Spiritual Marriage is just one of the three works
included in this version of St. John of Ruysbroek's (1293-1381)
Description:
writings. It also includes The Sparkling Stone and The Book of
Supreme Truth. St. John is well-known as a Christian mystic of
Flemish descent who spent most of his life in solitude, living as a
hermit or with a small number of disciples. Adornment of the Spiritual
Marriage is a study of the Bible's metaphor of Christ as the Bridegroom
and the church as the Bride, a "marriage" that produces perfect union.
Union with God is also the theme of The Sparkling Stone and The
Book of Supreme Truth, where St. John describes several mystical
levels of union with God in which the human body and mind are
forgotten. St. John is known for having an extraordinary propensity
for theology and philosophy, and his works exhibit his great mind.
These classic pieces of spiritual literature are rife with imagistic
language and readers will be in awe of this spiritual giant's mind.
