»The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.«
[Slovenian above | English below]
Ko sem se srečala z Mojstrom Eckhartom, krščanskim mistikom iz 13. stoletja, me je presenetilo, kako se modrost obudi in za nekaj stoletij ponikne, kakor je to v primeru Eckharta, ko se je sredi 19. stoletja ponovno pojavil na sceni. Dominikanski menih, ki se je rodil okrog leta 1260 v Turginiji, je študiral Aristotela in Platona v Parizu, kjer je tudi nekaj let poučeval. Nato sledi dolgo obdobje v Strasbourgu, od koder je znano le to, da je skrbel za številne samostane in se ukvarjal predvsem z duhovnim vodstvom in pridiganjem. Leta 1320 ga je kölnski nadškof Henrik iz Virneburga obtožil herezije, prav tako je Janez XXII. obtožil Eckhartova učenja za krivoverska. Dve leti pred sodbo je Mojster Eckhart izginil in umrl okrog leta 1328. Danes si dominikanski meniški red prizadeva za popolno rehabilitacijo obsojenih tez in za razglasitev Mojstra Eckharta kot blaženega.

When I met Meister Eckhart, Christian mystics of the 13th century, I was surprised how wisdom awakens and for a couple of centuries disappears, as in the case of Eckhart, when in the middle of the 19th century, his wisdom reappeared on the scene. Meister Echart was a Dominican monk, and one of the most profound thinkers of the Middle Ages. He was born about 1260 A.D. in Thuringia, and in 1295 he was Prior of the Dominicans at Erfurt and Vicar-General of Thuringia. In 1300 he was sent to the University of Paris, where he studied Aristotle and the Platonists. It is possible also that he taught at Paris. He already had a wide reputation as a philosopher and was summoned to Rome in 1302 to assist Pope Boniface VIII. Then it was a long period at Strasburg where he was responsible for numerous monasteries, spiritual guidance, and preaching. In 1320 he was accused of heresy and heretic learning. Two years before the judgment Meister Eckhart disappeared and died around 1328. Today Dominican monks try to rehabilitate his name and declare him as blessed.
