Elements of the Science of Religion, vol. 2 1896–1898

Cornelius Petrus Tiele

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

In his second series of lectures, entitled Ontological, Tiele focuses on the permanent elements present in all religions. Outward ‘manifestations’ are explainable through psychological interpretations, but the underlying ‘constituents’ are the result of internalized experiences of the superhuman. Religion is the result of an inherent belief in the infinite and the outward expression of the emotional experience elicited in that encounter.
