Rohls, Jan (2019): Schelling and protestant theology. In: International Journal of Philosophy and Theology, Vol. 80, No. 1-2: pp. 8-22

Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


From the beginning of his philosophical career Schelling, a former student of theology at Tubingen, influenced Protestant theologians in Germany. He contributed to biblical studies as well as to dogmatics. A controversial point was his conviction that religion needs a foundation in speculative reason. This was a position criticised by Schleiermacher but shared by Carl Daub and Philipp Marheineke. It played also a major role in the discussions about the history of dogma initiated by Ferdinand Christian Baur and David Friedrich Strauss. After Schelling stopped publishing at the end of the second decade of the 19th century, his influence on theology dropped, and his late philosophy became an object of critique by the theological Hegelians.
