Mystical Theology of St. Bernard by Etienne Gilson
Book DescriptionThis classic study placed the saint squarely among the outstanding theologians of the Middle Ages, and stripped away the sentimentality in which popular piety had wrapped him. Gilson demonstrates in Bernard's works his blend of monastic tradition and the new learning of the early twelfth century.

In this work, the Catholic philosopher Etienne Gilson deals with one of the most important and perplexing metaphysical problems: the relation between our notion of God and demonstrations of his existence.
US Kirkus Review » The fact that Gilson's opinions run counter to most scholars is in itself a recommendation for this book, an incentive and selling point for theologians and philosophers who like controversial matters. For Gilson is a genius, a great mystic and philosopher himself, a pioneer in the realm of the mind and soul whose originality can be trusted, if not to find new continents, at least to provide profitable exploration. He sets out to prove that St. Bernard's mysticism is systematized and scientific, in contradiction to the general belief that it is practical. His reasoning is rich fare. (Kirkus Reviews)
