Voces de la mística II


Abstract

Voices of Mysticism II [Voces de la mística II ]

The excellent response given to the first volume of Voices of Mysticism has encouraged the author and publisher to publish a second anthology of texts on the search for the transcendental, which has been a constant throughout history in all ages and cultures. Indeed, mystical experience goes beyond any denominational or conceptual boundaries. Today, it is the subject of study by the most diverse disciplines, from theology to brain science, taking in anthropology and aesthetics. As stated by the renowned theologian, Juan José Tamayo, "new research shatters the beatified and elusive image of the mystics, to show their politically incorrect, religiously subversive and theologically creative character".

As in the first volume, the texts included are an enriched selection from the columns published by Javier Melloni over the last decade in the journal of literature and opinion, El Ciervo. They continue to be presented in chronological order, covering a range of topics, from the Upanishads of the Indian Vedic tradition to the Buddhist monk and peace activist, Thich Nhat Hanh, and taking in Plato, Hildegard of Bingen, William Blake and Albert Einstein.

Javier Melloni (Barcelona, 1962) is a Jesuit, theologian and anthropologist specialising in comparative mysticism and inter-religious dialogue. He is a member of the Justice and Christianity Study Centre in Barcelona and teaches at the Faculty of Theology of Catalonia and the Sant Cugat Fundamental Theology Institute. Important examples of his literary output are Vislumbres de lo real [Glimpses of Reality] and El Cristo interior [Christ Within], both published by Herder Editorial.

Abstract

Voices of Mysticism I [Voces de la mística I ]

The search for the transcendental has been a constant throughout history, in all ages and cultures. Indeed, mystical experience goes beyond any denominational or conceptual boundaries. Today, it is the subject of study by the most diverse disciplines, from theology to brain science, taking in anthropology and aesthetics. As stated by the renowned theologian, Juan José Tamayo, "new research shatters the beatified and elusive image of the mystics, to show their politically incorrect, religiously subversive and theologically creative character".

This anthology is an example of this search. The thirty-three texts included are an enriched selection from the columns published by Javier Melloni over the last decade in the journal of literature and opinion, El Ciervo. They include, in chronological order, examples ranging from the classic Tao Te Ching, attributed Lao Tzu, to the controversial Carlos Castaneda, with others by Plotinus, Ibn Arabi, San Juan de la Cruz and Simone Weil.

Javier Melloni (Barcelona, 1962) is a Jesuit, theologian and anthropologist specialising in comparative mysticism and inter-religious dialogue. He is a member of the Justice and Christianity Study Centre in Barcelona and teaches at the Faculty of Theology of Catalonia and the Sant Cugat Fundamental Theology Institute. Important examples of his literary output are Vislumbres de lo real [Glimpses of Reality] and El Cristo interior [Christ Within], both published by Herder Editorial.
