Its one of the most successful German theological books of the 20th century, has never gone out of print & is available in many languages. It defines the concept of the holy as that which is numinous. Otto explained the numinous as a non-rational, non-sensory experience or feeling whose primary & immediate object is outside the self. He coined this new term based on the Latin numen (deity). The expression is etymologically unrelated to Kants noumenon, a Greek term referring to an unknowable reality underlying all things.

The numinous is a mystery (Latin: mysterium) thats simultaneously terrifying (tremendum) & fascinating (fascinans). It also sets a paradigm for the study of religion focusing on the need to realize the religious as an irreducible, original category in its own right. This paradigm was attacked during 50-90 but has made a strong comeback since then, after its phenomenological aspects have become more apparent.
