Ramon Lull, the “Apostle of Africa.” Lull lived far back in the thirteenth century, not long after the days of St. Francis of Assisi, whose disciple he was. He gives us, as it were, a pre-vision of the splendors of that ‘Golden Age of Mysticism’, which dawned for Spain three hundred years after his birth. His mystic writings and especially his ‘ART of CONTEMPLATION ’, ‘BOOK OF THE LOVER AND THE BELOVED ’ and ‘ THE GREAT ELIXIR ’ are full of the purest and noblest spirituality, compounded with the quintessence of love. 'If you will have fire,' he cries, 'oh you that love, come light your lanterns at my heart.' His famous phrase, “He who loves not - lives not,” sums up his inspiration.
The style of the poetry is more aligned to the works of the Sufi’s than of Western classical poetry.
Still, these works remains some of the most profound and high-ended poetry rivaling that of St. John of the Cross. Ramon has both dug deep within the mystical arena and has climbed high into the clouds in both addressing himself, humanity and how God relates to us and we unto Him.
In this effort, only the best of his Mystical Poetry are assembled here. This is the first time the these works are together.
THE ART OF CONTEMPLATION
BOOK OF THE LOVER AND THE BELOVED
THE GREAT ELIXIR
Just as “Ascent of Mount Carmel” and “A Dark Night: are parts one and two respectively, so too, with the “Art of Contemplation” and “Book of the Lover and Beloved.”
“The Great Elixir” is a short work following the work of Plato dialogues acted out in a Shakespearean manner.
