In order to do so it behoves us to define clearly what is meant by that term. Mysticism has nothing to do with magic, neither does it mean something un intelligible, although often the term is misapplied in these ways. It stands for a definite religious conception which is found alike in Christian and nonChristian faiths. No school of religious thought is without its mystics; they are^found^in the orthodox Roman Catholic Church, a well known modern example being Mons. Benson, while Bunyan, the Puritan pedlar of the 17th century, was just as truly a mystic. The Hindu, the Chinese Buddhist and the Mahommedan Fakir may all claim to be mystics, and to this school of thought belongs the ancient Greek philosopher, Plotinus.
