Editorial Reviews

“In a beautiful text that has been “edited and mildly modernized” by Henry Carriegan, Jr., John offers an early treatise on his spiritual poetry, outlining themes that he fleshed out more fully in his more famous later work, Dark Night of the Soul.” Publishers Weekly

Author Bio: Saint John of the Cross

Saint John of the Cross (1542–1591), born Juan de Yepes Alvarez and also called San Juan de la Cruz, was a major figure of the Catholic Reformation, a Spanish mystic, and a Carmelite friar and priest. He was a reformer of the Carmelite Order and is considered, along with Saint Teresa of Ávila, a founder of the Discalced Carmelites. Both his poetry and his studies on the growth of the soul are considered the summit of mystical Spanish literature and one of the peaks of all Spanish literature. He was canonized as a saint in 1726 by Pope Benedict XIII.
