Meditations on the Life and Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ
Johannes Tauler (c. 1300 in Strasbourg – 15 June 1361) was a German mystic, a Catholic preacher and a theologian. A disciple of master Eckhart, he belonged to the Dominican order. Tauler was known as one of the most important Rhineland Mystics. He promoted a certain neo-platonist dimension in the dominican spirituality of his time. Tauler was one of several notable Christian universalists in the Middle Ages. He taught that "All beings exist through the same birth as the Son, and therefore shall they all come again to their original, that is, God the Father." He was also famous for his sermons, which were considered among the noblest in the German language which were seen as rather intensely practical, and touching on all sides the deeper problems of the moral and spiritual life.
