See Schütz’s letter to Voegelin from March 3, 1939. 6. 1 I delayed answering until now because I have been waiting from day to day for news from Europe on whether to begin my return trip on the 28th as planned.

For an English translation of the full introduction that Schütz had before him as he wrote to Voegelin, see CW, 33, The Drama of Humanity and Other Miscellaneous Papers, 1939–1985, ed. William Petropulos and Gilbert Weiss (Columbia: University of Missouri Press, 2004), 19–23. For the English translation of the full text of Die Politischen Religionen 1939, including the expurgated introduction, see CW, 5, Modernity without Restraint: The Political Religions; The New Science of Politics; and Science, Politics, and Gnosticism, ed.
