Summary

Meister Eckhart was a fourteenth century Dominican monk. Considered a forerunner to the Reformation, he was an established theologian, and as a result had a profound impact upon medieval scholasticism mostly through his sermons. Meister Eckhart's Sermons contains some of his short sermons. The sermons themselves are in relatively plain English. In them, Eckhart flirts with some controversial topics. He describes the soul as "laying hold" of God in a mystical manner, so that there is "no distinction" between God and the soul. Indeed, some of his more radical teachings were eventually condemned by a papal council as heretical. But Eckhart does illustrate a way to synthesize one's religious belief with one's philosophy. Interesting and demanding, Meister Eckhart's Sermons will challenge a person's conception of God and religion.
