Mystical Experiences of Bernard Berenson
(1865 - 1959)

American art critic and connoisseur of Italian art, Bernard Berenson, writes in his autobiography, Sketch for a Self-Portrait, about his mystical experience:
"It was a morning in early summer. A silver haze shimmered and trembled over the lime trees. The air was laden with their fragrance. The temperature was like a caress. I remember---I need not recall---that I climbed up a tree stump and felt suddenly immersed in Itness. I did not call it by that name. I had no need for words. It and I were one."

Berenson, Berenson. Sketch for a Self-Portrait, (New York: Pantheon Books, 1949), p.18.
