Notes

According to Keller, mystical literature includes aphorisms, biographies, reports on visions, commentaries, dialogues, instructions, prayers, religious poetry, and fiction.[1]. To this list we should also add songs

"'Mystical Writings are texts which deal with ultimate knowledge: with its nature, its modalities, its conditions, its methods, and also with secondary insights....'Mystical writings' are thus texts which discuss the path towards realization of the ultimate knowledge which each particular religion has to offer, and which contain statements about the nature of such knowledge."[2]
