Meister Eckhart (and his banishment)


“Sometimes I have talked about a light within the soul, which is uncreated and which cannot be created.”    – sermon 48 

“Everything that is said in the Holy Scriptures about Christ becomes true with every good and divine human being.” 

“Yes – even when someone is slandering God, he is praising him.” 

“The father begets me as his son and as the same son. Whatever God does is One; therefore he begets me as his son without any difference.”

             (The last three sentences form part of the papal banishment document)
