Religious books from or regarding the medieval and renaissance periods:

Gary Macy
Treasures from the Storeroom
Medieval Religion and the Eucharist 

This volume belongs on the shelf of any medievalist or student of theology - it is perhaps more enlightening for the 21st century than for the 13th century climate, since the pluralism of the latter was far more genuine and intelligent. Its humour and insight make it a pleasant dose of originality - and it is the first comprehensive study I've seen of this area. Special attention to the Franciscan theologians (who, in England particularly, were quite extraordinary - even Aquinas looks bland next to Bonaventure and Duns Scotus.) 

Julian of Norwich : Mystic and Theologian
Grace Jantzen
Excellent background of Julian's theology, time and place.

The Satisfied Life : Medieval Women Mystics on Atonement
Jane Ellen McAvoy
Interesting treatment of the theology of atonement and its application in the lives and writings of vastly different mystics.

Augustine Through The Ages: An Encyclopedia 
Allan Fitzgerald(Editor), et al 

The Cloud of Unknowing
Anonymous - definitive work on mysticism from the Middle Ages - incredibly beautiful

The English Mystics
Tarjie Park
Rich sampler of Julian of Norwich, Walter Hilton, the Cloud of Unknowing, and other mystics of the fourteenth century - plus an introductory history, brief but excellent, which is more enlightening than volumes on the subject.

Ladder of Perfection (Penguin Classics)

Largely devotional - a bit "workbook" for my tastes, but well set out for those who love some structure.
