about

The term Compunctio
Gregory the Great (ca 540-604)
spoke about compunctio, the holy pain.
The grief somebody feels when faced with
that which is most beautiful is both a reminiscence
and a fore-taste of the divine world.
Originally compunctio was a medical term
that described intense physical pain,
but when Gregorius used the word
he spoke about a spiritual pain.
The bittersweet experience stems from
human home-lessness in an imperfect world,
human consciousness of, and, at the same time,
a desire for perfection.
This inner spiritual void becomes painfully
real when faced with beauty.
There, between the lost and the desired,
the holy tears are formed.
Owe Wikstrˆm,
professor in Psychology of Religion
at the University of Uppsala
