Dionysian in its insistence that the intellect is incapable of penetrating into God's nature -- that between the intellect and God there is a ''cloud of unknowing'' -- this anonymous fourteenth-century treatise on the way of contemplation calls instead for a loving effort of the will as the only way to break through to the Object of our longing. It is, of course, one of the defining documents in the history of Western mysticism. Preface by Simon Tugwell.

An Eighth Day View:

The Cloud of Unknowing puts forth a method of contemplation that stresses the impotence of the understanding to break through the cloud of unknowing that separates God and humanity.
