Bridal Mysticism: An Overview

ByMarilynn Hughes

BRIDAL MYSTICISM: Bridal Mysticism was first identified in the Old Testament and continued into the New Testament and found itself expressed very vividly in the lives of certain saints who came to be known as the Bridal Mystics. In the scriptures, God’s love for His people was often characterized as a similar relationship to that of the Bridegroom and the Bride. It was typified this way to show the ecstatic love and mystical union which can be achieved between a human person and the divine, wherein God becomes in a sense ‘the lover.’ ‘Bridal Mysticism: An Overview’ takes you into this fascinating subject in the religions around the world and then more specifically in the lives of the Catholic Saints in whom this concept was perfected.
