In this book, Dr. Jung, who has been the author of some of the most provocative hypotheses in modern psychology, describes what he regards as an authentic religious function in the unconscious mind. Using a wealth of material from ancient and medieval gnostic, alchemistic, and occultistic literature, he discusses the religious symbolism of unconscious processes and the possible continuity of religious forms that have appeared and reappeared through the centuries.

"These compact vigorous essays constitute Dr. Jung’s most sustained interpretation of the religious function in individual experience."—Journal of Social Philosophy

Editorial Reviews

"Dr. Jung presents a sane and practical psychology, and is fair and sympathetic in his attitude toward religion. There is probably no modern psychologist whose writings are of more significance and value to the minister than the writings of Carl Jung."—Pulpit Digest

"This psychological study of religion is peculiarly interesting in light of current social and political movements throughout the world."—The Personalist

"These compact vigorous essays constitute Dr. Jung's most sustained interpretation of the religious function in individual experience."—Journal of Social Philosophy

"In this slender volume we have Jung up-to-date. . . . Many ideas about the basic foundation of religious needs and beliefs, and, incidentally, about mass drives and impulses of our contemporary life, are in these lectures, strung upon the main thread issuing from the dream life of a patient."—Saturday Review of Literature
