Ascent of Mount Carmel (Spanish: Subida del Monte Carmelo) is a 16th-century spiritual treatise by Spanish Catholic mystic and poet Saint John of the Cross. The book is a systematic treatment of the ascetical life in pursuit of mystical union with Christ, giving advice and reporting on his own experience

S. John of the Cross assumes his reader to be familiar with the rudiments of the spiritual life and therefore omits detailed description of the most elementary of the exercises incumbent upon all Christians. The plan of the Ascent of Mount Carmel (which, properly speaking, embraces its sequel, the Dark Night), follows the lines of the poem with the latter title (p. 10).

Nihil obstat: ceorgivs smith, . Imprimatvr: e. morrogh bernard. Westmonasterii: die XXIV septembris MCMLII. To the discalced carmelites of castile, With abiding memories of their hospitality and kindness in madrid, ávila and burgos, but above all of their devotion to saint john of the cross, I dedicate this translation.

He was called "the greatest of all mystical theologians" by spiritual teacher Thomas Merton. And when St. John of the Cross was proclaimed to be a Doctor of the Church, Pope Pius XI praised his work as "a guide and handbook for the man of faith who proposes to embrace a life of perfection." The writings of the pious Carmelite priest, as well as those of St. Teresa of Avila, are regarded as the peak of Spanish mysticism. This remarkable guide to the spiritual life stands as his most popular work. Imprisoned in Toledo during the sixteenth century, St. John wrote about his spiritual struggles with a unique poetic vision, illuminating a path for the faithful to grow closer to God. He believed that a spiritual union was open to us, but not before experiencing the confusion and despair of a dark night of the soul. Yet John's words are uplifting, lyrical, and filled with hope for any soul who aspires to the Divine union. By emptying ourselves of earthly distractions—memory, will, and sensual desires—we can make room for the pure light of God's grace. A primer to his Dark Night of the Soul, this acclaimed translation will resonate with modern pilgrims searching for wisdom.
Book is easily understandable. I love this guy. He explains everything. His writing is rich and deep and meaningful and beautiful.
A wonderful book! Great condition. Excellent and prompt service. Thank you.
The value of its contents is very good but the English used is very hard to understand. A really classic book.
The only translation with all the beauty of a poetic read that reaches deep inside...written with a logical progression to the kernel of truths - the litany of councils for conquering the desires in chapter XIII was a key moment that took me a bit to realize the optical word here is Desire - not eliminate but to eliminate the desire - that was so like Taoism I could see the beauty shared by the mystics
