Roger Lipsey is an art historian, editor and author, Dr. Lipsey has written on a wide range of topics and intellectual figures, but his greatest contributions to the body of perennialist literature are undoubtedly the three volumes he edited of the works of Ananda Coomaraswamy (Coomaraswamy, Bollingen series, Princeton University Press, c1977).
Lipsey has been called the "leading authority on the life and work of Coomaraswamy" as a result of this monumental task. As an author, his most recent books have been The Spiritual in Twentieth-Century Art, Angelic Mistakes: The Art of Thomas Merton, and Have You Been to Delphi?: Tales of the Ancient Oracle for Modern Minds. He is currently completing a book on the mind and methods of Dag Hammarskjold, based on research in the United States, Sweden and Great Britain.
Roger Lipsey earned both his MA (1966) and Ph.D. (1974) from New York University. His Ph.D. was in the history of art at the Institute of Fine Arts at NYU.
