« Mysticism in the Golden Age of Spain (1500-1650) provides the single most thorough history of the influence of Spain on Christian mysticism during the Reformation. Serious church scholars and students of church history and mysticism will make this volume an essential part of their library. It is the 7th installment in the Presence of God series, which has been acknowledged by both the review media and the academy as the most important and comprehensive series devoted to the Reformation. It is a complete treatment of the subject, including extensive notes and references. Unlike general histories that have been written about the Reformation, McGinn’s volume is rich in detail and provides a fascinating and intelligent review of mysticism in early Spain. »
