Religious Aspects Of Nazism

Historians, political scientists and philosophers have studied Nazism with a specific focus on its religious or semi-religious aspects. The most prominent discourse here is the debate whether Nazism would constitute a political religion, but there has also been research on the millenarianistic, messianic, Gnostic and occult aspects of Nazism. Debate continues as to how to define the religious aspects of Nazism.

Famous quotes containing the words religious and/or aspects:

    This philosophy of hate, of religious and racial intolerance, with its passionate urge toward war, is loose in the world. It is the enemy of democracy; it is the enemy of all the fruitful and spiritual sides of life. It is our responsibility, as individuals and organizations, to resist this.
    Mary Heaton Vorse (1874–1966)

    The happiest two-job marriages I saw during my research were ones in which men and women shared the housework and parenting. What couples called good communication often meant that they were good at saying thanks to one another for small aspects of taking care of the family. Making it to the school play, helping a child read, cooking dinner in good spirit, remembering the grocery list,... these were silver and gold of the marital exchange.
    Arlie Hochschild (20th century)
