Am y llyfr

Astudiaeth hynod ddiddorol o gyfriniaeth ac ysbrydolrwydd mewn llenyddiaeth ganoloesol, yn benodol yng ngweithiau Richard Rolle a William St. Thierry, a'r modd y mae esboniadau ar y testun beiblaidd 'Cân y Caniadau' yn ceisio dehongli cariad rhwng Duw a'r unigolyn.

Dyfyniadau

'innovatory and important [...] this sounds a very exciting book' 'no other scholar [...] has covered the range of reference which Dr Renevey outlines in his proposal, and he is perhaps uniquely qualified among current scholars to provide an in-depth study' 'this study will break new ground and will give a firm intellectual basis to the study of mystical writings'
