Reviews - What do customers think about Late Medieval Mysticism of the Low Countries (The Classics of Western Spirituality)?
Excellent text and reproductions Dec 7, 2004
The description for the book says everything essential. I only want to add that this is a very inexpensive book for the quality of the text and images. It is also very large, so it is something that appeals even to non-specialists who enjoy contemplating the icons and their meanings. I strongly suggest this book as an introduction to the Orthodox doctrine and use of icons to honor the saints and worship God.
