Friedrich Schleiermacher's groundbreaking work in theology and philosophy was forged in the cultural ferment of Berlin at the convergence of the Enlightenment and Romanticism. The three sections of this book include illuminating sketches of Schleiermacher's relationship to contemporaries (Mendelssohn, Hegel and Kierkegaard), his work as public theologian (dialogue on Jewish emancipation, founding the University of Berlin) as well as the formation and impact of his two most famous books, On Religion: Speeches to its Cultured Despisers and The Christian Faith. Richard Crouter examines Schleiermacher's stance regarding the status of doctrine, Church and political authority, and the place of theology among the academic disciplines. Dedicated to the Protestant Church in the line of Calvin, Schleiermacher was equally a man of the university who brought the highest standards of rationality, linguistic sensitivity and a sense of history to bear upon religion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'Crouter's book is important for tracing the evolution of Schleiermacher's thought. ... Crouter has long harboured a wish to write a biography of Schleiermacher, and his knowledge of the factors that shaped his life and thought make this book a valuable guide to understanding him.' Church Times
'Crouter's essays are much more than occasional papers. Each is thoroughly researched and densely noted; Crouter's command of both the primary and secondary Schleiermacher literature is prodigious. Yet, for all their scholarly heft and discipline, these essays are charming, witty and graceful.' German Studies Review
