The Spiritual Legacy of Friedrich von Hügel

Ellen M. Leonard’s study of Baron Friedrich von Hügel’s life, thought, and spiritual vision rediscovers this important Catholic voice from the turn of the 20th Century.  Hügel was a lay theologian who maintained both his personal equilibrium and his spiritual leadership role during the complex days of the "modernist movement."  Hügel sees three elements of religion: the authoritative, historical, and institutional; the critical, speculative, and philosophical; the intuitive, vocational, and mystical.  Leonard’s study concentrates both on Hügel’s writings and spiritual activities.
