“Since it is God’s nature not to be like anyone, we have to come to the state of being nothing in order to enter into the same nature that He is.”
(German sermon 7, trans M. O’C. Walshe)

Welcome to the Eckhart Society

Medieval Mystical Theology; The Journal of the Eckhart Society

Formerly Eckhart Review

The Eckhart Review, much respected by scholars and students alike, and published by The Eckhart society since 1992 has been relaunched under the title Medieval Mystical Theology: The Journal of the Eckhart Society and is now published by Taylor & Francis Group.

It is published twice a year in January and July.

Medieval Mystical Theology is  a peer reviewed scholarly journal with a broader scope than the Eckhart Review – as is spelt out in the editorial policy below.

Further, the full text of all back issues of the Eckhart Review will also be made available online to institutional subscribers to the journal. Others may purchase individual papers on the Taylor & Francis Group website.

We at the Eckhart society are very enthusiastic about this expansion of our journal and believe that it will provide a much needed medium for the publication of scholarly medieval mystical theology together with Eckhart Studies.

Editorial Policy

Medieval Mystical Theology is the peer-reviewed journal of the Eckhart Society, and welcomes the submission of scholarly papers embracing all factors contributing to the understanding of medieval mystical theology. This includes not only the study of individual writers, but also movements, themes, developments and ideas within the context of mystical theology in the Middle Ages. The journal embraces the influence of Neo-Platonism, Aristotelianism, Patristics, Judaism and Islam on Christian medieval mystical theology, as well as interpretations of the tradition for today. Comparisons between medieval mystical theology and other traditions, such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism and Confucianism, are also within the compass of the journal.

As the journal of the Eckhart Society, it especially welcomes scholarly studies of the life, work and reception of Meister Eckhart. Submissions should ideally range between 5000-7000 words and conform to the journal format guidelines.

Back issues of the Eckhart Review from Number 8 (1999) to Number 19 (2010) are available, while earlier issues are available as photocopies. Both types may be purchased from the Shop.

The price per issue, both print and photocopy, is £12.00 including postage.
