KIRCHNER, Renato  e  LAROCA, Jealison Machado. Phenomenological interpretation of the Poema "The Dark Night" of John of the Cross. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.spe, pp. 498-504. ISSN 1809-6867.

This article aims to expose, analyze and interpret, from the phenomenological method, the work Dark Night (Noche oscura), by the Christian mystic John of the Cross (1542-1591). We look for a deepening in the base text, as well as of specialized commentators. The phenomenological horizon is demarcated by the Heideggerian notes under the title "The Philosophical Foundations of Medieval Mysticism", dated 1918/1919, and published in volume 60 of the Complete Work by the title Phenomenology of religious life. The interpretation here makes it possible to discern to what extent the symbol "dark night" can be communicated and understood by religious man and non-religious man, since Dark Night refers to a very particular state of mystical experience, which leads to the divine union of love with God.

Palavras-chave : Dark night; Mystical experience; Purification; John of the Cross.
