The only feeling is one of boundless misery. They will make convulsive efforts to rehabilitate themselves in face of the accusations and hatred of the surrounding world, but that is not the right way. The only redemption lies, as I have already indicated, in a complete admission of guilt.
Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa! That is not only a religious but also a psychological truth. The American treatment of conducting the civilian population through the concentration camps and letting them see all the abominations committed there is therefore quite right. Only, the object lesson should not be driven home with moral instruction; repentance must come from inside the Germans themselves. It is possible that positive forces will emerge from the catastrophe, that from this introversion prophets will once again arise, for prophets are as characteristic of this strange people as the demons.
Anyone who falls so low has depth. In all probability there will be a miraculous haul of souls for the Catholic Church — the Protestant church is too split up. There are reports that the general misery has reawakened the religious life in Germany; whole communities fall to their knees in the evenings, beseeching God to deliver them from the antichrist. My entire life consisted in elaborating what had burst forth from the unconscious and flooded me like an enigmatic stream and threatened to break me.
That was the stuff and material for more than only one life. Everything later was merely the outer classification, scientific elaboration, and the integration into life.
Jung Speaking Interviews Encounters by Mcguire William Hull
But the numinous beginning, which contained everything, was then. Jung worked his text and images in the Red Book using calligraphic pen, multicolored ink, and gouache paint. The text is written in German but includes quotations from the Vulgate in Latin, a few inscriptions and names written in Latin and Greek, and a brief marginal quotation from the Bhagavad Gita given in English.
The initial seven folios or leaves of the book — which contain what is now entitled Liber Primus the "First Book" of Liber Novus — were composed on sheets of parchment in a highly illuminated medieval style. However, as Jung proceeded working with the parchment sheets, it became apparent that their surface was not holding his paint properly and that his ink was bleeding through.

These first seven leaves fourteen pages, recto and verso now show heavy chipping of paint, as will be noted on close examination of the facsimile edition reproductions. In , Jung commissioned the folio-sized and red leatherbound volume now known as the Red Book.

The folio-sized volume, Though Jung and others usually referred to the book simply as the "Red Book", he had the top of the spine of the book stamped in gilt with the book's formal title, Liber Novus "The New Book". Jung subsequently interleaved the seven original parchment sheets at the beginning of the bound volume.
After receiving the bound volume in , he began transcribing his text and illustrations directly onto the bound pages. Over the next many years, Jung ultimately filled only of the approximately pages bound in the Red Book folio. Inside the book now are completed pages of text and illustrations including the loose parchment sheets , all from Jung's hand:  53 full-page images, 71 pages with both text and artwork, and 81 pages entirely of calligraphic text.
The Red Book is currently held, along with other valuable and private items from Jung's archive, in a bank vault in Zurich.
During Jung's life, several people saw his Red Book — it was often present in his office — but only a very few individuals who were personally trusted by Jung had an opportunity to read it. After Jung's death in , Jung's heirs held the book as a private legacy, and refused access to it by scholars or other interested parties. After many years of careful deliberations, the estate of C. Jung finally decided in to allow publication of the work, and thereafter began preparations for the publication. The decision to publish was apparently aided by presentations made by Sonu Shamdasani, who had already discovered substantial private transcriptions of portions of the Red Book in archival repositories.
On occasion of the publication in October , the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City displayed the original book along with three of Jung's original "Black Book" journals and several other related artifacts; this exhibit was open from 7 October to 25 January It was the center of a major display and conference at the Library of Congress from June 17 — September 25, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
