A"Indispensable. The best work in mysticism in the English language.A" Evelyn UnderhillA"An event of prime importance to a wide circle of students of religious phenomena.A" The Brimingham PostFrom the Publisher:
Friedrich von Hügel's 'Mystical Element of Religion' remains the authoritative study of the spirituality of Catherine of Genoa. First published in 1908, this seminal work develops the author's major theory of the three basic elements of religion, institutional, intellectual and mystical. Von Hügel shows how Catherine's mysticism relates to her life and thought, making his comprehensive and masterly two-volume analysis a classic in the study of Western mysticism. Baron von Hügel was an influential Roman Catholic lay philosopher and writer. He was born in Florence, Italy, in 1852. His family moved to England when he was fifteen, and he remained there for the rest of his life, abandoning his Austrian citizenship during the First World War. He never went to university nor did he hold any academic post, but mainly because of the importance of 'The Mystical Element of Religion' became the first Roman Catholic to be awarded an honorary doctorate of divinity by the University of Oxford. He died in 1925.
