Inspired by holy scriptures as well as the late 5th century mystic Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, the anonymous author of this medieval text suggests that God is on an entirely different plane of existence—indeed, so different that time-bound human language was inadequate to describe God exhaustively or accurately. Intellect and emotion both fail in seeking God, this scholar suggests, who can only be encountered by rejecting of all common earthly means. Translating the work from Middle English, Father John-Julian also provides an introduction to this time honored Christian treatise.
