He gave eight lectures before the University of Oxford and these were published by Methuen & Co., London, A central part of the Orthodox Church’s theology is the notion of deification,18 more properly known as theosis. 19 This concept of theosis is a crucial underpinning of Orthodox belief and practice, 20 and is integral to Orthodox mysticism.

    This book takes on this observation and explores the evidence for the influence of mysticism on the philosophy of existentialism. It begins by delving into definitions of mysticism and existentialism, and then traces the elements of mysticism present in German and French thought during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
