Meister Eckharts Mystische Schriften: In Unsere Sprache Übertragen von Gustav Landauer.

by Johannes Eckhart


Meister Eckhart was perhaps the greatest German mystic of the Middle Ages. His ideas served as forerunners to the Reformation. Unlike many of his peers, Eckhart stressed the importance of the individual’s connection to God, rather than just God’s connection to the church. Recently, his writings have once again come drawn attention. They have greatly influenced modern movements in theology and philosophy, such as postmodernism and existentialism. Eckhart wrote his original text in medieval German; the version provided here is in modern German.
