Schopenhauer's struggles with Christianity and mysticism are considered in this paper under three aspects: (1) methodology and defnitions, (2) doxography of dogmatics, (3) mystology and hagiology. In the first section, Schopenhauer's approaches and opinions in dealing with Christianity are described. In the second section, relevant passages from Schopenhauer's work on Christian dogmatic topics are compiled and systematized. In the third section, the function and significance of the Christian mystics and saints for Schopenhauer's life and work are presented.
