This month, we are doing an encore edition of last month’s discussion on medieval mysticism for those who could not attend in January. See below for last month’s description of the event:
For our upcoming online session, we will move back in time. Over the last few months, we have been looking at the works of the alchemists from the 1600s. Now we will go back to the early part of the late Middle Ages, circa 1325. A Dominican monk by the name of Henry Suso, a follower of the German mystic Meister Eckhart, wrote a book called Das Buch Gennant Seuse which included a woodcut illustration known as the Horologium Sapientiae. We will examine an article from the Rosicrucian Forum, discuss the symbolism of this woodcut, and maybe learn a little bit more about the flavor of the mysticism of the time.
