    Abstract: At the end of the 17th century, we can see notable decline of interest in mysticism among Christians. This article looks at how the Quietist movement played a role in this process. It also highlights the dangers of the quietistic tendencies that can still be seen today in some types of non-Christian spirituality that try to infiltrate the Church. On the background of authentic mysticism, this article points out not only the features characteristic of quietistic pseudomysticism, but also the features characteristic of modern types of false mysticism. A person experiencing authentic mysticism never loses his fear of offending God neither completely abandons the humanity of Christ, for it is the means of our salvation. But it would be a mistake, even out of fear of falling into error, to completely renounce the mystical dimension of life with Christ. For God calls us all to intimate union with himself.

    Keywords:  Humanity of Christ, Mysticism, Prayer, Quietism, Spirituality.
