Bernard McGinn is widely regarded as the greatest living authority on the history of Christian spirituality and mysticism. He serves as editor-in-chief of Paulist Press’s Classics of Western Spirituality series, and is the author of sixteen books, including most recently The Harvest of Mysticism in Medieval Germany (1300-1500) (2005), Early Christian Mystics: The Divine Vision of the Spiritual Masters (2003) and The Mystical Thought of Meister Eckhart: The Man from Whom God Hid Nothing (2001).
