Now available in a single-volume edition, this exhaustive collection has been completely revised and includes a new introduction by a leading Eckhart scholar. Containing the entire text of all of Eckhart’s vernacular—the German texts, which present his personal reflections on topics such as the poverty of spirit and the birth of Christ in the soul—this treasury is the authoritative volume of Eckhart’s enduring legacy to Christianity.
