The first work of its kind to be written in the English language.  The Cloud of Unknowing is a spiritual guide to contemplation from an anonymous English monk of the 14th Century.  It has inspired spiritual teachers from St. John of the Cross in the 16th century to contemporary teachers of prayer such as Basis Pennington and Thomas Keating.  The author explains that ordinary thoughts and earthy concepts must be buried beneath a "cloud of forgetting" while our love must rise toward a God hidden in the 'cloud of unknowing'. Through this medieval masterpiece has been translated many times, this edition is specially accessible to the modern reader and listener..

WILLIAM JOHNSTON, S.J. an authority on 14th-century mysticism and spirituality, translated several works from the contemplative traditions of both East and West.
