Abstract [en]

The publication is based upon the first English translation of some essential parts of Professor Anders Nygren’s dissertation Religiöst Apriori. Dess filosofiska förutsättningar och teologiska konsekvenser [Religious Apriori: Its Philosophical Presuppositions and Theological

Consequences], 1921. In this work, Nygren established the foundation for his subsequent philosophical and theological thinking. Important theoretical and methodological perspectives that laid the groundwork in the thinking of Anders Nygren have hereby been made accessible for the English-speaking world.

A short biographical introduction to Anders Nygren is given, followed by an comprehensive introduction to the Religious Apriori, including an assessment of Nygren’s achievement.

The extensive bibliography includes works in English by relevant Swedish theologians.
