Mysticism of Colonial America (Pamphlet)


This collection of essays details the early work of Johannes Kelpius (1673-1708), a German Pietist and mystic, William Penn (1644-1718), and others in Colonial America as they made a valiant effort to dedicate this world, this hemisphere, to the fulfillment of the prophecies of the ages. Transcendentalism has been described as a philosophical and religious democracy, a part of our heritage that we ought not forget. Also discussed is the connection between American mysticism and Ancient Greek and Alexandrian classical philosophy as seen through the prism of early mystical Christianity.ISBN: 0-89314-876-8 |  Pamphlet. 52pp.
