    Abstract:
    In this course we will analyze mystical literature in the west from 500 BCE to the present. Beginning with the mystical matrix (Platonism, Apocalypticism, and Mystery Religions), we will proceed to the primary mystical literature from three major western religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam), culminating in the study of more recent authors in whose work east meets west. Specific topics include visionary ascent, mystical interpretations of scripture, eros and sexuality, and autobiographical writings.
