The Religion of Man (1931), delivered as the Hibbert Lectures at Oxford in 1930, is an extensive and commanding exposition of Tagore’s understanding of the meaning and significance of religion in the cultural history of man.
The Manchester Guardian commented “no series of Hibbert Lectures has aroused more public interest than the present one.”
The Religion of Man for Tagore is not a question of theory but a thing of experience. Most people are born into a religion; few earn their own. Tagore did. He delivered these lectures when he was nearly seventy – they are his mature reflection on the subject.
