Karoly Kerenyi


Hungarian classical philologist and authority in comparative religions, who pioneered research in ancient cultures and formulated a theory of the “Humanism of integral man.”

A professor of classical studies (Pécs, Szeged) and visiting professor of Hungarian language (Basel), Kerényi joined the Carl Jung Institut (Zürich) in 1948, investigated primitive mythology, and founded the periodical Albae Vigiliae to disseminate anthropological studies. His many works on classical mythology include Die antike Religion (1940; “Ancient Religion”) and Die Mythologie der Griechen (1951; “Mythology of the Greeks”).

He died 14 April 1973.
