Reviews

'This work will remain of key importance to the study of Ruybihan well into the next century. The internal consistency of Ruzbihan's esoteric imagery and the metaphysical complexity of his doctrines have never been more convincingly presented, and the author's frequent cross-references and quotations from the saint's various treatises, tracts, and books is highly commendable.' - Leonard Lewisohn, Bibliotheca Orientalis
