Cistercian Publications Suggests

Written in reaction to the teaching of Peter Abelard and as a companion piece to The Enigma of Faith, the Mirror explores how faith knows, how reason knows, and how—in the last analysis—only love can know God.

The treatise is an important one, and this for two reasons: It is one of the earliest medieval treatments of faith; and it treats of faith as the rockbed foundation of any and all intense living of Christianity. The translation in the present volume is finely attuned to the original latin.
