Re: Eckhart

Dan,

I read an introduction to Christian Mysticism this summer, and Eckhart got a lot of attention. If I recall, there were some serious questions back in his day about him being heretical; I also noticed (I think) that Buddhists have taken an interest in him. I’m pretty sure he had some strongly annihilationist tendencies in his mysticism (that is, union with God means complete destruction of self).

I’d be interested to see what RadOx or Rollins say about him…
