The introduction sketches out the main themes that constitute the object of the present study and situates it in relation to the earlier scholarship on Leibniz and theology. It considers the studies of Pichler on Lutheranism and Baruzi on the Roman Catholic Church in particular. It draws attention to the fact that since the early 20th century new Leibniz manuscripts have surfaced that throw a new light on Leibniz’s theology and that a less general approach than that adopted by Pichler and Baruzi is sometimes more useful if we want to pinpoint certain specific features of Leibniz’s theological thinking. It also highlights the need to examine Leibniz’s theology in the light of his philosophy and vice versa.
