EDITH STEIN: THE SCIENCE OF THE CROSS
Volume 6 of The Collected Works of Edith Stein, translated by Josephine Koeppel, O.C.D. This volume reflects Stein's study of the works of St. John of the Cross. Because of the Nazis' merciless persecution of Jews in the 1930s and 1940s, Stein felt the threat of torture and death. Therefore, it is no surprise that in view of her circumstances, she discovered in the cross a central viewpoint for her study. Using her training in phenomenology, she helps the reader understand the symbols in St. John's writings. Paperback. 358 pages.
