Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941) was a renowned Anglo-Catholic poet and novelist whose works on mysticism were some of the most widely read in the early twentieth century. She and her husband, Hubert Stuart Moore, had no children, but travelled extensively throughout Europe where Underhill pursued her interests in art and Catholicism. As a product of the Edwardian era, Underhill was concerned with exploring the physic, the occult, the mystical, the scientific, and the spiritual in her works. In her later years, she became a lecturer and spiritual leader in the Anglican Church, and proponent of the power of contemplative prayer. In 1922 Underhill edited an anonymous work of Christian mysticism called "The Cloud of Unknowing." The work was written in the late 14th Century in Middle English, and is a treatise about seeking a pure entity of God through contemplation, not through knowledge and intellect. This version is often considered the best translation of the work to modern English.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Widely considered a hallmark of Western literature and spirituality, The Cloud of Unknowing is an anonymous English monk’s sublime expression of what separates God from humanity. Originally written in the 14th century, this beautiful contemplative resource has been embraced for hundreds of years for its simple, engaging style and spiritual truths. The Cloud of Unknowing consists of a series of letters written by a monk to his student or disciple, instructing the reader in the way of Divine union. Its theology is presented in a way that is remarkably easy to understand, as well as practical, providing advice on prayer and contemplation that anyone can use. It describes an abstract, transcendent God beyond human knowledge and human language. Drawing upon radically different traditions, it is a rich work full of intriguing contradictions that speaks to us with liveliness, warmth and humor even today.

Quatrième de couverture :

Written by an anonymous English monk during the late fourteenth century, The Cloud of Unknowing is a sublime expression of what separates God from humanity and is widely regarded as a hallmark of Western literature and spirituality. A work of simplicity, courage, and lucidity, it is a contemplative classic on the deep mysteries of faith.

"Lift up your heart to God with a humble impulse of love and have himself as your aim, not any of his goods ... Set yourself to rest in this darkness, always crying out after him whom you love. For if you are to experience him or to see him at all, insofar as it is possible here, it must always be in this cloud and in this darkness." –– The Cloud of Unknowing
