The Ascent of Mount Carmel is the third major work of Saint John of the Cross, a Spanish mystic and major figure of the Catholic Reformation in 16th Century Spain. 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.

Considered to be his introductory work on mystical theology, this work begins with an allegorical poem. The rest of the text is a detailed explanation and interpretation of the poem.

Facsimile Print. Translated by David Lewis, "with corrections and prefatory essay on The Development of Mysticism in the Carmelite Order by Benedict Zimmerman, OCD, Prior of St Lukes, Wincanton, Somerset. 1906."
