German phenomenologist known for her work on an ontology of reality. She married Theodor Conrad who helped provide for her as women academics tended to struggle to make a living at the time. As she had one Jewish grandparent her work was stalled by the rise of Nazism. At some point she became a Christian mystic, religiously active as a Protestant. Edith Stein's interest in Catholicism came during a visit to her home. Although Protestant, Conrad-Martius would late receive a dispensation so she could be Edith Stein's godmother. Conrad-Martius died in Munich on 15 February 1966, aged 77.
