This book includes introductions and texts that show the writer’s developing understanding of his faith. The analyses of Jakob Böhme, German mystics and Meister Eckehart were essential to his visionary beliefs, without which the series of ‘Schau- und Lesebücher’ on Angels, the Holy Spirit, St. Elisabeth, the Mother of God, the Conqueror of Death and the Devil (including an extra dimension of Schreyer’s prayers), and his book on the Catechism cannot be fully appreciated. Inspired by the reform of the Roman Catholic Liturgy, they point towards theological insights of the Second Vatican Council. The final collection of discussions and reminiscences on Abstract Christian Art in 1962 emphasizes the role of dialogue as an exploratory form of education. Although it was not possible to include the illustrations and detailed comments on these that formed an integral part of the original publications, the introductory texts and selections by themselves reveal a process of active commitment and searching independence characteristic of Schreyer’s life and style. Some illustrations characteristic of his interests as a writer and artist are included, together with an introduction on the texts, and notes on the illustrations.
