The Mysticism of the Cloud of Unknowing

William Johnston


“The Cloud of Unknowing” was the work of an unknown 14th-century English writer with a powerful message of God's unconditional love in the face of despair. This book's theological treatment of this and other works by the same writer makes a conscious comparison with Oriental ways of contemplation.

Keywords: The Cloud of Unknowing, 14th century, God, unconditional love, contemplation, Oriental contemplation
