The Book of the Perfect Life crystallizes the mystical experience of the late Middle Ages, but still speaks to seekers today. Martin Luther wrote of this fourteenth-century devotional work that "next to the Bible and St Augustine, no other book has come to my attention from which I have learned-and desired to learn-more concerning God, Christ, man, and what all things are." Theologia Deutsch-the title this work has most commonly appeared under-has been through 190 editions in ten languages throughout its six hundred-year history. Drawing on the latest German critical edition of the work, David Blamires brings us the definitive English translation of this classic mystical work, The Book of the Perfect Life.
