Eight hundred years ago, Albert of Jerusalem gave the hermit-penitents of Mount Carmel a way of life to follow. Since then, this rule has inspired and formed mystics and scholars, men and women, lay and ordained to seek the living God. In The Carmelite Tradition Steven Payne, OCD, brings together representative voices to demonstrate the richness and depth of Carmelite spirituality. As he writes, Carmelite spirituality seeks nothing more nor less than to 'stand before the face of the living God' and prophesy with Elijah, to 'hear the word of God and keep it' with Mary, to grow in friendship with God through unceasing prayer with Teresa, to 'become by participation what Christ is by nature' as John of the Cross puts it, and thereby to be made, like Therase of Lisieux, into instruments of God's transforming merciful love in the church and society." The lives and writings in The Carmelite Tradition invite readers to stand with these holy men and women and seek God in the hermitage of the heart. Steven Payne, OCD, of the Washington Province of Discalced Carmelite Friars, is a member of the Carmelite Friars' formation team at the Monastery of St. John of the Cross near Nairobi, Kenya, and director of the Institute of Spirituality and Religious Formation (ISRF) at Tangaza College, a constituent college of the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA) in Nairobi. He is the past editor of ICS Publications and of Spiritual Life magazine and the author of several works in philosophy of religion, theology, and Carmelite spirituality. He is a member of the Carmelite Forum and of the Carmelite Institute in Washington DC, of which he is a past president. "

Band 6/2 der monumentalen Mystikgeschichte von Bernard McGinn befasst sich mit der Mystik im Goldenen Zeitalter Spaniens. Schwerpunkte bilden die geistliche Lehre und das mystische Leben des Ignatius von Loyola sowie die karmelitische Mystik, insbesondere einer Teresa von Ávila und eines Johannes vom Kreuz. Weitere mystische Stimmen aus Spanien, Portugal und dem spanischen Amerika der Zeit runden den Band ab. Mit seiner groß angelegten Geschichte der Mystik im Abendland schließt Bernard McGinn eine Lücke der Theologie- und Kulturgeschichtsschreibung. Eindrucksvoll stellen die einzelnen Bände der vorliegenden Reihe unter Beweis, dass eine rein literaturwissenschaftliche Darstellung der Mystik der Tragweite des Themas keinesfalls gerecht wird. McGinns neuer Zugang mit einer konsequenten Einbeziehung religiöser Strömungen und philosophischer Ideen holt die Entwicklung der Mystik aus dem Dunkel der Geschichte. Auf überzeugende Weise gelingt es dabei, den religiösen Kern des Phänomens Mystik verständlich zu machen – ein roter Faden, der sich durch die vielfältigsten geschichtlichen Metamorphosen der mystischen Lebensform verfolgen lässt. Ein Schlüsselwerk der abendländischen Kultur- und Spiritualitätsgeschichte.

For many of us, our understanding of the Carmelites is limited to the lives and times of the sixteenth-century Spanish mystics, Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross. However, Wilfrid McGreal shows that if we want a way into Carmelite spirituality, we need to go back to its origins. How has the vision of the pilgrims and hermits who settled on Mount Carmel been sustained for some eight hundred years? What is the key to it, and how has it been re-imagined in different eras and cultures?
