This introduction to the writings of Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998), the pre-eminent spokesman of the Perennialist or Traditionalist school of comparative religious thought, is the first book to present a comprehensive study of his intellectual and spiritual message. In addition to a clear explanation of Schuon's message of metaphysics and the great religions, Oldmeadow includes an overview of Schuon's paintings and poetry, and insights on prayer and virtue in the spiritual life.
Harry Oldmeadow is Coordinator of Religious Studies at La Trobe University Bendigo. His previous publications include Journeys East and The Betrayal of Tradition. He lives in Mandurang in Central Victoria, Australia.
