SCHLEIERMACHER, Friedrich Daniel Ernst

SCHLEIERMACHER, Friedrich Daniel Ernst
   the most important German PROTESTANT theologian of the nineteenth century and the founder of modern LIBERAL THEOLOGY. He rose to fame following the publication of his Speeches on Religion to its Cultural Despisers (1799) where he defines RELIGION as the "feeling" or "sense" of ABSOLUTE dependence and separates the study of religion from SCIENCE and other academic disciplines. His work set the tone for the rejection of NATURAL THEOLOGY and the development of non-traditional theological systems which reinterpreted CHRISTIANITY in terms of the MODERN age a project he began in The Christian Faith (1821-1822).
