Editorial Reviews

Christian Mysticism interweaves words and music handed down from the great Christian mystics with breathtaking views of cathedrals and monasteries in Europe and the U.S. The monastic belief that love leads to enlightenment shines through the serenity of the monks.

Scenes in Christian Mysticism and the Monastic Life of monks gardening, milking cows, and in solemn chapel prayer illustrate in a vivid way the belief that contemplation and work are paths to God.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Contained in this very short documentary is an abundance of beautiful images of European monasteries and flowers and countryside. The actual details of monastic life are glossed over. However, the author of this video from the 1970s spends a considerable amount of time philosophising and attempting to basically summarize and lump together a central truth in all of "Christian" monastic thought. The author fails miserably. What is espoused is essentially New Age/Gnostic dogma suggesting that as long as love reigns it doesn't matter what you actually believe about God. The Bible is shockingly misinterpreted in this video, where they quote I John 4:7-8 and conveniently leave out verses which immediately follow, where the BASIS for the "love" mentioned in verses 7 and 8 is explained to be FAITH in Christ's "propitiation for our sins" on the cross. In ignoring what the text is actually saying, the author of this video attempts to convince the viewer that the Bible promotes the idea that doctrine is irrelevant as long you are good to each other. Such teaching subtley negate the need for Christ's atonement.

If you want to look at beautiful images shot on an old 1970s camera, and don't mind Luciferan mishandlings of Holy Scripture, this video is for you.
