About this product
- DescriptionRudolf Otto (1869-1937) is one of the foremost pioneers in the study of religion, and as a theologian, philosopher and phemelogist of religion, he exerted a worldwide influence in his field. Today, however, the position that Rudolf Otto holds seems less favourable. Many critics, especially in Germany, regard Otto's work, which moves freely between the disciplines of Theology and Religionswissenschaft, as lacking in methodological rigour. Our starting-point is the Idea of the Holy, a category which comprises both the rational and the n-rational dimensions of religion. This provides us with a key to link Otto's theoretical thinking with the practical initiatives in which he was engaged. Thematic parallels are suggested, firstly, between Otto's work in Christology, and Liturgical Reform, and secondly, in relation to his thinking on ethics, and the establishment of the Religious League of Mankind.
- Author BiographyThe Author: Steven Ballard, born 1952, is a priest in the Church of England, and lives and works presently in Cumbria. A study of theories on the origins of religion introduced the author to the work of Rudolf Otto, and this led to his research of the Otto Archives, held at the University of Marburg, Germany, during the summer of 1993. The author's continuing research interests lie in the earliest evidences of religion among mankind.
