A facsimile reprint of Evelyn Underhill's book first published in 1915. The following comments are condensed from an editorial note to this edition: "We are equally poorly off for studies of the life and doctrine of this great Flemish contemplative of the fourteenth century. And yet Jan van Ruysbroeck is thought, by no few competent judges, to be the greatest of all the medieval mystics; and, indeed, it is difficult to point to his superior. Miss Evelyn Underhill is, therefore doing lovers of mysticism a very real service by this monograph, which deals more satisfactorily than any existing work in English with the life and teachings of one of the most spiritual minds in Christendom.
