Abstract

Today ‘charisma’ is mostly employed to describe a heroic or extraordinary quality of an individual person, but the term's history is curious and complex. From obscure beginnings in early Christian usage, where it meant ‘the gift of grace’, charisma is now a popular catchword among journalists and lay people alike. Its twentieth-first-century connotations, and the debate it has occasioned, are inseparable from the thought of Max Weber (1864–1920).
