Abstract :
In this article, I would like explore what is meant by the term ‘mystical experience'. Next, I will focus on some methodological problems which we may encounter when dealing with texts describing a mystical experience. Finally, in a third point, I will present a brief historical overview, focussing on some important witnesses to mystical experience, especially in the Low Countries.
