John Tauler was a German Dominican mystic
living in the 14th century. He is known as one of the
Friends of God, an informal group of Catholic mystics who
strove to deepen both their communal relationship as well
as their inner spirituality. Tauler was a leader of this
group. His sermons demonstrated his mastery of combining
the mystical with the concrete, the spiritual with the
practical. 25 of his sermons are included in this volume. He also
taught that each human has a desire for God which is satisfied through
detachment from earthly things. Also in this volume is a biography of
Tauler, which allows readers to gain better insight into this ancient
religious man's life and work.
