At the last major meeting of the Kentish rebels at Blackheath he preached his famous "communistic" sermon. "When Adam delved and Eve span, Who was then the Gentleman? From the beginning all men by nature were created alike, and our bondage or servitude came in by the unjust oppression of naughty men. For if God would have had any bondmen from the beginning, he would have appointed who should be bond, and who free. And therefore I exhort you to consider that now the time is come, appointed to us by God, in which ye may, if ye will, cast off the yoke of bondage, and recover liberty."

Adornment of the Spiritual Marriage is just one of the three works included in this version of St. John of Ruysbroek's (1293-1381) writings. It also includes The Sparkling Stone and The Book of... More > Supreme Truth. St. John is well-known as a Christian mystic of Flemish descent who spent most of his life in solitude. Adornment of the Spiritual Marriage is a study of the Bible's metaphor of Christ as the Bridegroom and the church as the Bride, a "marriage" that produces perfect union. Union with God is also the theme of The Sparkling Stone and The Book of Supreme Truth, where St. John describes several mystical levels of union with God in which the human body and mind are forgotten. St. John is known for having an extraordinary propensity for theology and philosophy, and his works exhibit his great mind. These classic pieces of spiritual literature are rife with imagistic language and readers will be in awe of this spiritual giant's mind. -Abby Zwart, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
