"Ruysbroeck is Evelyn Underhill s biography of 14th-century Flemish mystic John of Ruysbroeck. An ordained priest, Ruysbroeck was active for many years in Brussels before retiring to the Sonian Forest, where many of his surviving works were written.

He is perhaps best remembered for conceiving of the spiritual ladder of Christian attainment and its three stages of progress: the active life. Ruysbroeck was born near Brussels in and was raised by a devout mother who trained him in a life of holiness. At the age of eleven, he went to Brussels to live with an uncle, John Hinckaert, a priest and canon of St.

Ruusbroec's mysticism is strongly focused on love, God's ineffability, and on the Trinitarian nature of God's inner life. Of all the great mystics, Ruusbroec seems to be the one who most strongly saw God's triune side, as opposed to other mystics who tended to see more God's unity and oneness (Eckhart and John of the Cross)/5(9).

Moreover, there was the growth of groups of mystics centered on geographic regions: the Beguines, such as Mechthild of Magdeburg and Hadewijch (among others); the Rhenish-Flemish mystics Meister Eckhart, Johannes Tauler, Henry Suso and John of Ruysbroeck; and the English mystics Richard Rolle, Walter Hilton and Julian of Norwich.

Tauler, who would become one of the most famous German mystics, visited the hermitage and was deeply influenced by John. John died on this day, December 2, at Groenendael. In the pope declared him blessed. Bibliography: "Ruysbroeck or Ruusbroec, Bl Jan van." The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church.

Unlike many mystics, he believed that the soul in its journey was capable of finding God but would never unify with God, maintaining always its own identity. And yet, though remembered for his mysticism, Ruysbroeck at times could be a traditionalist, forcefully writing in favor of historic Church customs.
