Spiritual Direction from the English Mystics:

'The Revelations of Divine Love', by Julian of Norwich

'The Cloud of Unknowing', Anonymous

'Scale of Perfection', Walter Hilton

The current popularity enjoyed by these 14th century English mystics lies in their vocation to seek union with God. Here, for the first time, Julia Gatta shows these mystics to be prototypes for the modern spiritual director, displaying keen insights into that pastoral art. At the heart of the mystics' writings is their own intense desire not merely to see and know God for themselves, but also to bring others to this union with God.
