As a layman with a stack of books which I find rather challenging, I have assembled these resources as an aid to my reading of Eric Voegelin. I hope others in a similar situation will find them helpful.
The outlines are intended as an aid to the memory for those who are reading Voegelin, not as a substitute for the original material. It is impossible to summarize another man's words entirely accurately. I hope I have not done too much violence to his works, but readers should refer to the original sources for Voegelin's true thought.
