The best way of learning about any thinker, even the most difficult, is by starting at the beginning and reading. This is particularly true of the writings of the philosopher and mystic, Meister Eckhart (1260- 1327), a Dominican theologian. There is a great deal written about Eckhart from widely varying perspectives from Christian to Buddhist, existentialist, idealist and many more. Rather than begin with introductions which are difficult in their own right, I suggest starting with Eckhart's own teachings and trying to respond directly to them. Eckhart wrote scholastic treatises in Latin and a variety of writings in his vernacular language, German. The latter writings are far more accessible and are included in the volume under review.

A spiritual treasure, this book, "The Complete Mystical Writings of Meister Eckhart", is the most comprehensive single volume in English available of Eckhart's German writings. Initially published in three volumes in the 1979 and 1987,... Read more
There are other excellent reviews of this book, so I'll keep this short.

The lion's share of the book is the translation of all his Middle High German sermons, organized and labelled in such a way that you can find them regardless of which of the seven different methods for numbering that have been used over the years, about 450 pages. Ninety pages are devoted to five short treatises. The treatises deal primarily with the Medieval style of monastic discipline. There is no New Age rainbows and Celtic knots here. This volume is a bit pricy, but the introduction by Bernard McGinn, and expert on Eckhart and the medieval in general contributes much to the value of the book. For those to whom this is important, it is also very nicely designed, with a spffy dust jacket.

For those who are new to Eckhart, you may be surprised at the briskness and brevity of the sermons. After spending a fair amount of time reading sermons by John Donne and Jonathan Edwards, I'm amazed... Read more
Eckhart's style, depth and inspiration are phenomenal. As a teacher of Faith, he is the true successor of Plotinus, Augustine and Saadya Gaon, and is only approached in value in the 18th century by Jacob Emden and the Testimonies of M.A.L.. His grasp and scholarship are universal and immense, his style compelling. His exposition is as inspiring and helpful to the Zen Buddhist, Sufi, Jew, or JW, as it is to the Christian. His mind and scholarship are unconfined by dogmatic bounds, and he quotes the Pagan greats as well and the Jewish adepts often, and reveals the brotherhood of Truth.

I've read the various English translations, and greatly admire Walsh's erudition and competence. Unfortunately, I have not had the chance (yet) to read the Latin and German originals, but sense that Walsh is truly adept in those languages, certainly as they were in the Meister's time. I am sure that the HS embraces both of them tightly, as will every true seeker. I recommend that you... Read more
