Like all historical movements, the Lutheran Reformation has its antecedents in previous time. It is with one of these preparatory and influencing movements that this paper is to deal, namely, that of Late Medieval Mysticism. In this paper, we shall attempt to present the chief representatives of Late Medieval Mysticism. We have devoted three sections to each representative: first, a brief biographical sketch; secondly, an abbreviated condensation of their mysticism and theological doctrines; and thirdly, a brief evaluation of their sphere of influence and their implications for the Reformation.
