Publisher writes

This book discusses issues of mystical theology, including the divine darkness, the affirmations and negations concerning God, super essential radiance, and the influence of jewels on some of the mystics. The celestial hierarchies section includes discussions concerning the nature of hierarchy, the first order of celestial beings, dominions, virtues and powers, and what the traditional number of angels signifies.

Judges' and contributors' comments

George Pattison: Not as readable as The Cloud of Unknowing, though very short – but, again, has affected the whole subsequent tradition and is today amongst the most frequently discussed of Patristic works, by philosophers as well as theologians.
