The German Roots of Nineteenth-Century American Theology

Annette G. Aubert

Oxford University Press

The concluding chapter summarizes the main findings and reasserts the primary thesis regarding the essential need to consider the influences of Friedrich Schleiermacher, Ernst Hengstenberg, and the mediating theologians on nineteenth-century Reformed theology in the United States. It briefly reviews the evidence indicating that American scholars were simultaneously receptive, inspired, and reactionary in their responses to German theology. The chapter also reaffirms the primary assertion that a transatlantic approach is required to bring into sharper focus the theological ideas and contexts of the Reformed theologies of Emanuel Gerhart and Charles Hodge, and that it is necessary to have a thorough understanding of European intellectual ideas to fully comprehend Reformed theology in America.

Keywords:   transatlantic context, German influences, American Reformed theology, modernity, theological developments, atonement theories
