The Cloud of Unknowing draws on the mysterious convention of Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite and Christian Neoplatonism, which concentrates on the by means of negativa street to finding God as an unadulterated element, past any limit of mental origination thus with no conclusive picture or frame. This convention has supposedly roused eras of otherworldly searchers from John Scotus Erigena, Nicholas of Cusa, and John of the Cross, to Teilhard de Chardin (the last two of whom may have been affected by The Cloud itself). Before this, the subject of The Cloud had been in the Confessions of St. Augustine (IX, 10) written in AD 398.

  • The book itself is a work of art, and especially worth perusing. Nonetheless, this interpretation is excessively old and awkward.
