Mysticism and Prophecy
By: Richard Woods, O.P.
Explores the spiritual tradition embodied by the followers of St. Dominic, the thirteenth-century founder of the Order of Preachers. Woods focuses on the interplay between mystical and prophetic elements in Dominican spirituality, especially the relation between “knowing” and unknowing which characterized the work of such figures as Thomas Aquinas, Meister Eckhard, and Catherine of Siena.
