Almost exactly contemporary with Palamas, the Dominican monk and preacher Eckhart may have a great deal more in common with Palamas than historical time: Eckhart's theological method was apophatic, and was analyzed positively by Vladimir Lossky, the contemporary Orthodox theologian who was also a perceptive student of Palamas. Though a loyal son of the Catholic Church, some of Eckhart's teachings edged toward a pantheistic tone that provoked a detailed condemnation by the Pope. The generous selection of material herein will allow the reader to judge this controversial mystic for himself. Preface by Huston Smith.
An Eighth Day View:
Meister Eckhart (c. 1260-1327) was a Dominican philosopher and spiritual master whose thought is among the most daring and difficult in the history of western mysticism.
