Words translatable as “spirituality” first began to arise in the 5th century and only entered common use toward the end of the Middle Ages.[need quotation to verify] In a Biblical context the term means being animated by God. The New Testament offers the concept of being driven by the Holy Spirit, as opposed to living a life in which one rejects this influence.
“Spirituality” began to denote the mental aspect of life. Opposed to the material and sensual aspects of life, “the ecclesiastical sphere of light against the dark world of matter”.[note 3] In the 13th century “spirituality” acquired a social and psychological meaning. Socially it denoted the territory of the clergy: “The ecclesiastical against the temporary possessions, the ecclesiastical against the secular authority, the clerical class against the secular class”[note 4] Psychologically, it denoted the realm of the inner life: “The purity of motives, affections, intentions, inner dispositions, the psychology of the spiritual life, the analysis of the feelings”.[note 5]
In the 17th and 18th centuries a distinction
[by whom?] between higher and lower forms of spirituality: “A spiritual man is one who is Christian ‘more abundantly and deeper than others’.”[note 6] The word was also associated with mysticism and quietism, and acquired a negative meaning.
Modern notions of spirituality develop throughout the 19th and 20th century, mixing Christian ideas with Western esoteric traditions and elements of Asian, especially Indian, religions. Spirituality became increasingly disconnected from traditional religious organisations and institutions. It is sometimes associate today with philosophical, social, or political movements such as liberalism, feminist theology, and green politics.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882) was a pioneer of the idea of spirituality as a distinct field. He was one of the major figures in Transcendentalism, an early 19th-century liberal Protestant movement, which was root in English and German Romanticism, the Biblical criticism of Johann Gottfried Herder and Friedrich Schleiermacher, the skepticism of Hume,[web 4] and Neo-Platonism. The Transcendentalists emphasise an intuitive, experiential approach of religion.[web 5] Following Schleiermacher, an individual’s intuition of truth was taken as the criterion for truth. In the late 18th and early 19th century, the first translations of Hindu texts appear. Read by the Transcendentalists, and influence their thinking. Endorse universalist and Unitarianist ideas, leading to Unitarian Universalism. The idea that there must be truth in other religions as well, since a loving God would redeem all living beings.
A major influence on modern spirituality was the Theosophical Society, which search for ‘secret teachings’ in Asian religions. It has been influential on modernist streams in several Asian religions, notably Neo-Vedanta, the revival of Theravada Buddhism, and Buddhist modernism, which have taken over modern western notions of personal experience and universalism and integrate them in their religious concepts. A second, related influence was Anthroposophy, whose founder, Rudolf Steiner, was particularly interest in developing a genuine Western spirituality, and in the ways that such a spirituality could transform practical institutions such as education, agriculture, and medicine.
The influence of Asian traditions on western modern spirituality was also further by the perennial philosophy. Proponent Aldous Huxley deeply influence by Swami Vivekananda’s Neo-Vedanta and universalism. and the spread of social welfare, education and mass travel after World War II.
