October 19: Evelyn Underhill

This coming Tuesday we’ll be discussing Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), an Anglican mystic.  We’ll be reading excerpts from The Essentials of Mysticism as anthologised by Richard J. Foster & James Bryan Smith in Devotional Classics, HarperCollins, 1993: 113-117.  You can’t read it online.

You can, however, read the entirety of her best-known classic work Mysticism at the Christian Classics Ethereal Library!

For more info on Underhill, check out the Evelyn Underhill Association.

I’m excited because I’m especially fond of mystics, missionaries and ascetics (hence the love of St. Francis who was all three).
