Library Journal Review

With these two titles, Paraclete begins a highly praiseworthy series of spiritual classics, one each by a female and male mystic of the Middle Ages. Editor Carrigan's commendable "mild modernizations" slightly alter the syntactic difficulties and archaisms of the originals while allowing them to retain both their otherness and their rhetorical power. Ardent spiritual seekers, especially Christians, can scarcely do without Mechthild and Lull, and for any library lacking the "Classics of Western Spirituality" versions of these authors, these convenient paperbacks should be an essential purchase.
