Abstract [en]

In this essay, my aim is to investigate the correlation between the political philosophy and theology in the Swedish nineteenth century painter, activist, mystic and vagabond Ivan Aguéli. The study places itself in the field of political theology, where the question of, and in some cases the search for, a theological affirmation or neglection of political and social authority is being processed. The results from the study is being discussed with some of the thinkers in this field in order to illuminate the results in the light of well-established theories and concepts. The interest of this essay is foremost to investigate how the individual notion of the nature of God effects the notion of social structures, which on a structural level can affect how our societies are being organized.In the study it becomes clear that the neoplatonic modalistic understanding of God and an anarchist morality and organizational form strengthen each other in Ivan Aguélis political theology. Aguéli holds the view that a new politic and a new understanding of the metaphysics is inseparable. Because of this view the individual process of salvation and the anarchist revolutionary struggle is understood to be utterly co-dependent. Therefore, the abandonment of the prevailing civilization and the birth of a new spiritual and social body occur simultaneously.
