  • By Nathaniel Kidd -

    This short and powerful 14th C text is one of the foundational classics of medieval English spirituality. Drawing on the tradition of symbolic and apophatic theology of Dionysius the Areopagite, the Cloud brings into the English language and idiom the deep riches of the Eastern Christian mysticism of late antiquity.
