About Wolfgang Klebel
Born in Vienna, Austria shortly before World War II, Wolfgang Klebel became a Catholic priest, studying at the best Catholic universities in Rome and Austria. Eventually, however, he left the priesthood, moved to California, United States, and became a psychologist treating mental disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), including in a women’s prison run by the State of California. He became a Bahá’i in his early sixties. Drawing on his background in theology, philosophy and psychology, Dr Klebel has presented papers at the ’Irfán Colloquia and the American Association for Bahá’í Studies.
