"The fact that three of the greatest minds of Germany (Wagner, Goethe, and Nietzsche) should fasten on early medieval psychology in their most important works is proof, it seems to me, that the age has left behind a question which still remains to be answered."
~ C.G. Jung
The 12th and early 13th centuries mark a dramatic turn in human history, when new forms of religious life sprang up out of the collective unconscious, creating new spiritual movements and a constellation of symbols and myths such as the Holy Grail.
This lecture and discussion will explore the evolution of the God-image through the sacred medieval psyche as manifested through the teachings of Joachim of Flora and Meister Eckhart, the religious movements of the Cathars and Knights Templar, and the legend of the Holy Grail—mystics and movements that deeply influenced C.G. Jung throughout his life and writing, and continue to resonate in the present.
