Mysticism defined and described
Mizell, Michael David
MetadataShow full item record
Mysticism has recently enjoyed resurgence as a topic of scholarly interest and a path of salvation. My aim in this project is to define and describe what mysticism is, and what it is not. This will entail defining the associated terms 'mystery', 'mystical', and 'mystic'. This work is also a comparative study of the scholarly examinations of mysticism and specifically addresses the question of mediation both before and after the 'mystical moment'.
