Religious Experience

Brief on all, special attention to numinous…concentrate on mystical.

Caroline Franks Davis, in The Evidential Force of Religious Experience, has outlined types of religious experience.  She has divided the experiences into six categories: interpretative, quasi-sensory, revelatory, regenerative, numinous, and mystical.  Though she asserts that this is not a categorization that sets definite lines or is all-inclusive, it is suitable to drawing enough of an analogous relationship between religious experience and the creative process.
