Об авторе (2006)

Thomas A Kempis (1379/80-1471) was a member of the Brethren, priest, Augustinian monk, author of a dozen books, and copyist extraordinaire. He lived at and was a member of the Windesheim congregation at Agneitenberg monastery in the Netherlands for more than seventy years.

Thomas à Kempis was born at Kempen, Germany in 1380. He attended Deventer in the Netherlands where he eventually joined the Canons and was later ordained as a priest. His most well-known work is the Imitation of Christ. It has been acclaimed as one of the greatest spiritual writings of all time. For some time there was some disputed as to the title's authorship. He died July 25, 1471.

John Wesley (1703-1791), and 18th-century Anglican clergyman and Christian theologian, was an early leader in the Methodist movement. Wesley's greatest theological achievement was his promotion of what he termed "Christian perfection," or holiness of heart and life.
