Dom Augustine Baker 1575–1641
Edited by Geoffrey Scott
Augustine Baker OSB is arguably the most important English mystical teacher of the post-Reformation period. His output was prodigious, and his knowledge of the spiritual classics all-embracing. This volume brings together the work of scholars from a variety of disciplines, and is the only major study currently available to explore the rich complexity of Baker's thought.
Baker is not an easy writer and this impressive collection of learned essays provides an invaluable series of historical philosophical and theological studies, which place him firmly against his seventeenth background and trace his influence both in his own day and since the revival of interest in him in the nineteenth century.
