Item description for Flowers of Heaven: One Thousand Years of Christian Verse by Joseph Pearce...

This anthology provides some of the finest Christian verse written during the second millennium of Christianity. All of the great ones are here: Hildegard of Bingen, Francis of Assisi, Dante and Chaucer from the High Middle Ages; Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross and John Donne from the Reformation; English and American Romantics such as Browning and Whittier; late nineteenth-century mystics like Dickenson and Hopkins, as well the great converts of that period like Newman and Chesterton; and, T. S. Eliot speaking out of and into our own times.

A conscious attempt was made to meet both the standards of academia and the tastes and sensibilities of the faithful. The selections are arranged chronologically to serve also as a history of verse. Brief biographical and anecdotal introductions reveal the varied relationships of the poets with each other and with the trials and tribulations of their day.

This magnificent collection is essential for all poetry lovers for those who respond to the beauty of the written word penned in the service of spiritual truth.

Reviews - What do customers think about Flowers of Heaven: 1000 Years Of Christian Verse?

Flowers of Heaven compiled by Joseph Pearce  Jan 14, 2008
This is an impressive collection of Christian poetry from
the past 1000 years. It is presented in a chronological order
by author. Pearce provides a very brief description
of the poet's lives which adds valuable insight. The chronological
ordering is useful in that it provides also a history of poetry
for the past 1000 years. It is a beautiful collection for an
ordinary person like me.
