The Mystical Theology of the Catholic Reformation is a conspectus of the intellectual achievement of the Age of the Baroque, the period between the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. The Baroque was one of the most fertile periods for art, science, theology, and mysticism in Catholic history. Despite extensive scholarship on specific achievements and pivotal thinkers of this age, there is no single work that views these events and thinkers in the context of the whole Baroque period. The Mystical Theology of the Catholic Reformation offers a comprehensive overview and panorama of the Baroque achievement in Scholastic philosophy, systematics, positive theology, scriptural exegesis, and sacred oratory. The principal theme focuses on the spirituality of the religious orders (with special attention on their Baroque representatives), in particular to the major orders of the Baroque age--the Jesuits, Oratorians, and Carmelites.

Mysticism In The Reformation 1500 1650

Mysticism in the Reformation, Part I of Volume 6 of The Presence of God Series, is the first full account of the role of the mystical element of Christianity in the Reformers who broke with Rome in the period 1500-1650. Although some modern Protestant theologians tried to distance the Reformation from any contact with mysticism, recent scholarship, by both Protestants and Catholics, has shown that Protestant mysticism is an important part of the heritage of the Reformation. After an "Introduction" surveying modern disputes about the nature of the Reformation and the Catholic reaction to it (both Catholic Reform and Counter-Reformation), Chapter One deals with how the pioneering Reformers Martin Luther and John Calvin reacted to the heritage of Christian mysticism, concentrating on Luther's complicated relation to mystical traditions. Chapter Two turns to the role of mysticism in select "Radical Reformers" of the sixteenth century, who created models of interior mystical religion that continued to have an effect over the centuries. Chapter Three analyzes the writings of the two most famous Lutheran mystics of the early seventeenth century, Johann Arndt and Jacob Boehme, whose impact in later Western religious traditions has been both powerful and controversial. Finally, Chapter Four considers the significance of mysticism in the English Reformation, both among those who accepted the Elizabethan Settlement that established the Anglican Church, as well as with the dissident Puritans who rejected it.

Endorsements: ""This is the ultimate bedside book. Replete with sinuous, compact discussions of first and last things--sin, faith, grace, and John Henry Newman--it reflects Jaroslav Pelikan's lifelong commitment to what he calls 'the great new fact of Christianity' . . . This book works like a tuning fork for the mind. With it, the harmony of Pelikan's thought and life has itself become part of the great Christian tradition."" --Christian Science Monitor ""This is a rewarding and exciting book from beginning to end. It shows the reflection of a master of his work, where the work continually reveals the author's enjoyment, both exemplifying and satisfying Horatio's utile dulci. Packed with knowledge and insight, it informs, stimulates, and delights. It also corrects, or at least reproves, some vulgar errors . . . A valuable book."" --Roland M. Frye ""I found Pelikan's thinking fascinating, elegant, informative, scholarly, and deeply personal and attractive . . . There is always some insight to gain. [Pelikan's book] provides a course in nearly the whole of Christian faith and history--in terms of just one person's journey."" --Robert B. Coote, Pacific Theological Review ""Jaroslav Pelikan ranged so widely in his exploration of historic Christian traditions, and his work probed so deeply, that it is a real boon to see Wipf and Stock bringing some of his books back into print. They were excellent reading when they first appeared; they remain excellent reading today."" --Mark A. Noll, McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame

The Oxford Handbook of Mystical Theology provides a guide to the mystical element of Christianity as a theological phenomenon. It differs not only from psychological and anthropological studies of mysticism, but from other theological studies, such as more practical or pastorally-oriented works that examine the patterns of spiritual progress and offer counsel for deeper understanding and spiritual development. It also differs from more explicitly historical studies tracing the theological and philosophical contexts and ideas of various key figures and schools, as well as from literary studies of the linguistic tropes and expressive forms in mystical texts. None of these perspectives is absent, but the method here is more deliberately theological, working from within the fundamental interests of Christian mystical writers to the articulation of those interests in distinctively theological forms, in order, finally, to permit a critical theological engagement with them for today. Divided into four parts, the first section introduces the approach to mystical theology and offers a historical overview. Part two attends to the concrete context of sources and practices of mystical theology. Part three moves to the fundamental conceptualities of mystical thought. The final section ends with the central contributions of mystical teaching to theology and metaphysics. Students and scholars with a variety of interests will find different pathways through the Handbook.
