St. Bonaventure was a Franciscan mystic, theologian and philosopher of the 13th century. He offers a passionate and transcendent spirituality, infused with ardent love and illuminated by a profound mystical wisdom. His Journey of the Mind into God is a beloved and influential spiritual text, outlining a systematic pathway for deeper encounter with the mystery of the Godhead. Bonaventure’s three-stage Journey commences with the perception of the Divinity in creation; then, in the inner nature of one’s own soul; and finally, through the elevation of the mind above all thoughts, concepts and images, to illumination by a “superessential ray of divine darkness.”
