Evelyn Underhill, Anglo-Catholic Mystic, RIP

Evelyn Underhill died on June 15, 1941. She was an Anglo-Catholic author and mystic. From her biography you might note that she wanted to become a Catholic but her husband objected and therefore she remained an Anglican. Underhill was much influenced by Baron Friedrich von Hugel. This year is the centennial anniversary of the publication of her great work, Mysticism. More on her life and works at the Evelyn Underhill Association.
