(p.286) Conclusion
Theology as Science in Nineteenth-Century Germany

Johannes Zachhuber

Oxford University Press

In the brief conclusion it is argued that the situation emerging at the end of the nineteenth century became paradigmatic for much of twentieth-century debate. Especially the greater divide separating theological from non-theological study of religion is explained as resulting from the breakup of the idealist programme that had driven much of theological research throughout the nineteenth century. This does not, however, mean that the issues raised in those earlier debates are now of merely historical interest. The text ends by suggesting that reception history might today be the most promising framework for a renewed appreciation of historical theology.

Keywords:   F. Schleiermacher, K. Barth, reception history, non-foundationalism, E. Troeltsch, F. C. Baur, history of religions, comparative religion, Wissenschaft, apologetics
