This book conveys the life and thought of Hans Denck (1500-1527), the contemplative genius of the Anabaptist movement, and examines the inner dynamics of his spirituality: its medieval context, its mystic content, and its Jewish roots. The author translates into English Denck's theological treatises, the original German of which is reprinted on facing pages. These texts convey with unmatched brilliance rare depths of insight on many aspects of faith and life, good and evil, truth and love directly relevant for our own quest of the Way.

This book presents the life and thought of Hans Denck (1550-1527), the contemplative genius of the Anabaptist movement. The author examines the medieval context, mystic content, and Jewish roots of Denck's spirituality and translates into English his theological treatises, the original German of which is reprinted on facing pages.
These texts convey with unmatched brilliance rare depths of mystic insight on many facets of faith and life, good and evil, truth and love, perfection and depravity. they explore knowledge of God within his and beyond creation, explain how Christ through us fulfils God's Law, and indicate why true love compels Oneness in Gelassenheit. The author presents conceptually precise equivalents for various technical terms representative of the medieval mystical tradition.
