Religious and Creative States of Illumination

Philip Woollcott, Jr., M.D.

In a series of publications Philip Woollcott reported an analysis of the psychology of religious experience utilizing data from two sources (1962, 1969). The first comprised reports of patients, clergy, and other religious volunteers. The "research tool" used was an in-depth, relatively open-ended interview in which the subject was encouraged to describe any religious or mystic experiences beginning in childhood, emphasizing adolescence, and continuing to the present. The interview lasted ninety minutes to two hours and in approximately twenty cases was supplemented by a full battery of psychological tests administered by an experienced clinical psychologist (Pruyser 1968). The second source of data comprised published autobiographical accounts of religious figures, notably Augustine, Martin Luther, and Ignatius of Loyola (Woollcott 1966, 1963, 1969).
This second illumination, although more creative and productive, was accompanied by a pronounced humility (Woollcott 1969).
Phenomenologically, they seem much the same if one examines only the experience of the ecstasy itself (Woollcott 1969).
We have referred in previous studies to this basic human ambivalence as the "fusion-individuation conflict" (Woollcott 1981).
