"The culture of fin de siecle Vienna continues to fascinate and has been examined at length. But these studies often downplay the religious dimension of Viennese modernist culture, implying - if not arguing outright - that "modernism" and "religion" are contrary, even hostile, categories." "Taking a different tack, Robert Weldon Whalen in Sacred Spring documents the important thesis that Viennese modernism, far from being secular, was in fact a deeply religious movement. Whalen examines this era of "being torn apart and rising again," describing those Viennese who were on the cutting edge of modern art and thought. Though the book focuses on avant-garde art, it also connects materials from journalism, popular culture, and contemporary politics." "Students of modernism, the arts, and European cultural history will find that Sacred Spring offers an intriguing perspective on their subjects. The book will also appeal to readers interested in the intersection of culture and faith, in the connection between the arts and the sacred."--BOOK JACKET.
-Publisher

The culture of fin de si?cle Vienna continues to fascinate and has been examined at length. There are indeed massive studies of Freud, Mahler, Loos, Klimt, and many other notables from that era. But these studies often ignore the religious dimension of Viennese modernist culture, implying -- if not arguing outright -- that "modernism" and "religion" are contrary, even hostile, categories.
