Product Description

The Collected Works of
St. John of the Cross


Revised edition (1991) 

Translated by Kieran Kavanaugh, OCD and 
Otilio Rodriguez, OCD

The fourth centenary of the death of St. John of the Cross inspired this revised edition of the English translation of his writings. The result is an edition that preserves the true meaning of the great mystic's writings, presents them as clearly as possible, and at the same time gives the reader the doctrinal and historical information that will lead to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the teachings of the Mystical Doctor.

"An excellent and practical edition."


"This is an extremely worthwhile and classic resource for cultivating a deeper inner life."

—Theological Students Fellowship

"The Institute of Carmelite Studies publishes excellent works at very inexpensive prices; its exemplary edition of The Collected Works of Saint John of the Cross, for instance, would get my vote as one of the best theological buys of all time."
