Eckhart Johannes

<history of philosophy, biography> known as Meister Eckhart (1260-1327). German Dominican theologian whose Von unsagbaren Dingen and other writings and sermons identified the being and intellect of a unified deity that could be apprehended only through mystical apprehension of the divine through an inner spark (scintilla animae) of the soul. Condemned as pantheistic in his own time, Eckhart's doctrines were a significant application of neoplatonic thought.
