The History of Mysticism (using Bernard McGinn's series of books)

With Philip McShane OP

Meetings on alternate Thursdays, 7.30–9.00 p.m. (with Christmas and Easter breaks)
In this group, we are reading and discussing Bernard McGinn’s celebrated work on Christian mysticism, currently we are at 1200-1350 AD. This should help us understand our prayer life more deeply and practice it more steadily.

“He [McGinn] has simply offered the best available account of the symbolic crucible from which Christian mysticism sprang.” (Word and World).

2017 Oct 19, Nov 2, 16 and 30, Dec 14
2018 Jan 18, Feb 1 and 15, Mar 1 and 15.
