    Written around 1380-1400, The Cloud of Unknowing is addressed to a young protege of the priestly, anonymous author who teaches that God is ultimately beyond human experience and unknowable, and describes the practices of Christian life, particularly for those wanting to attain the highest level of ascetical and mystical development. The work, along with its companion The Letter of Privy Counsel, is translated here, with insightful introductions, annotations and commentary by Father John-Julian.
