Abstract

The article is devoted to Nikolaj Grundtvig’s doctrine of transfi guration of the world and theosis, which derive from Orthodox and German mysticism, and Pietism. N. Grundtvig was an educational reformer in Denmark in the 19th century, whose ideas were embodied in establishing Folk High Schools, which were a variation of lecture halls and evening schools. With comparative methodology at its basis, our research explores Grundtvig’s notion of theosis and his doctrine on Sophia the Holy Wisdom. Initial stages of man’s ascent to God are described according to Grundtvig. Then Grundtvig’s theological development and political activity are interpreted through these stages of deifi cation. Finally, theoretical and historical aspects of Folk High Schools movement are discussed as well as the spreading of this educational model to other Scandinavian countries. Thus, it is shown that Grundtvig’s theology and educational theory have found their realization in social reformation of education.
