EDITORS COMMENTS
This enchanting engraving captures the profound contemplative spirit of Saint John of the Cross (1542-1591), a Spanish friar of the Discalced Carmelite Order, who is considered one of the greatest Christian mystics of the Middle Ages and a key figure of the Counter-Reformation. Born in Fontiveros, Spain, John lived a humble life dedicated to serving God and spreading the message of Christian love and devotion. The image shows Saint John seated at a simple table, deep in thought as he writes with a quill and inkwell. Above him, an apparition of Christ in the form of a crucifixion appears, surrounded by a radiant aura and accompanied by a dove, symbolizing the Holy Spirit. The presence of the animal, possibly a lamb or a deer, emphasizes the theme of innocence and purity. Saint John of the Cross is known for his profound writings on the spiritual journey towards union with God, including the famous "Dark Night of the Soul." His teachings continue to inspire and guide countless souls seeking a deeper connection with the divine. This beautifully colored engraving, created during the 16th century, is a testament to the enduring legacy of this remarkable man and his profound impact on the history of Catholicism and Christianity as a whole. The intricate details and rich colors bring the image to life, transporting us back to the Middle Ages and inviting us to contemplate the message of love, faith, and devotion that Saint John of the Cross continues to share with us today.
