Mystics of the Renaissance
by Rudolf Steiner
In "Mystics of the Renaissance," Rudolf Steiner examines the thought of eleven European mystics (Eckhart, Tauler, Suso, Ruysbroek, Nicholas of Cusa, Agrippa von Nettesheim, Paracelsus, Weigel, Boehme, Giordano Bruno, and Angelus Silesius) through a collection of essays and explains their ideas and how they relate to modern concepts. Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), was an Austrian philosopher and prolific author. Steiner made substantial contributions to numerous fields and wrote extensively about science, medicine, agriculture, social interactions, education, architecture and art. In particular, his insight into humanity, and its material and spiritual needs, became the essence of his work. "Mystics of the Renaissance," from Scriptoria Books, is an authentic reproduction of the 1911 G. P. Putnam's Sons' publication. It has been transcribed word for word, set in a contemporary typeface, and formatted for size and readability.
