We live in a Golden Age of writing on Christian mysticism. McGinn's own monumental and era-defining study now sails triumphantly into Spain's own Golden Age and his galleon delivers us a wealth of riches to admire. From its origins in the 'Spiritual Exercises' of Abbot García de Cisneros in the fastnesses of the Abbey of Montserrat in Catalonia to the quarrelsome but brilliant Fray Luis de Léon - the professor of Hebrew at Salamanca University arrested for his controversial

translation of the Song of Songs - the book takes us on an incredible and dazzling journey through this incomparable era of mystical writing.
