Translated from the Danish by W. Worster, M. A. A study of religion and melancholia; manic-depressive insanity; incurable forms of insanity; as a cause of insanity, and spiritual treatment of the insane; nervousness; and religion and mental degeneration.

"The purpose of these lectures, which were delivered in the University of Copenhagen, is to throw light on the relation between religious soul lie and morbid mental states, by going through the principle disease groups in brief, and showing, for each group, the manner in which mental trouble affects the religious life of the individual. The writer has endeavoured to distinguish between morbid and healthy religious life - as far as any such distinction can be made at all - as a guide to the clergy on this most important point. The spiritual treatment of mental cases is dealt with at length in a special section, but here alsto the writer endeavours to show where such treatment may be considered advisable, and where, on the other hand, it is likely to do more harm than good." - Preface.
