AbstractNicholas of Cusa has long been recognised as a major Christocentric and mystical theologian. However, Cusa's Christology has often been treated as stand-alone and thereby disconnected from wider currents of late medieval theology and piety. The papers in this session seek to redress this by placing Cusa's Christology and passion mysticism in the framework of the Long Reformation. They also present for the first time a discussion of Cusa's innovative Mariology.
