Book of the month: Mystik blir vetenskap: Donnerska institutet för religionshistorisk och kulturhistorisk forskning 1956–2021 by Nils G. Holm
65 years ago, on 29 March 1956, Uno and Olly Donner signed the donation letter that led to the foundation of the Donner Institute. To celebrate this, the institute has this spring published its history Mystik blir vetenskap (Mysticism becomes science), compiled and written by Nils G. Holm, emeritus professor in the study of religions at Åbo Akademi University and longstanding member of the board of the institute.
Mystik blir vetenskap offers a thorough description of the origin of the institute and the individuals that have contributed to the activities of the institute. The history also introduces research personalities, librarians, international symposia and cultural seminars, research projects, kilometers of shelfs with research literature, research prices and scholarships.
