Schleiermacher Group

Statement of Purpose: 

This Group is committed to the following:

Providing a forum for sustained and focused study of texts — texts penned by Schleiermacher, read by Schleiermacher, and inspired by Schleiermacher

Identifying theological, religious, ethical, and philosophical themes with a wide range of appeal and contemporary relevance and sponsoring sessions on them

Balancing the interests and scholarship of specialists and nonspecialists alike

Identifying, helping to establish, and supporting scholarship in new areas of Schleiermacher research

Being fully and creatively engaged in theological conversations in the AAR and inviting serious scholarship on Schleiermacher’s oeuvre — scholarship that will shape the questions for the next generation of Schleiermacher scholars

Call for Papers: 

1) Our theme for 2015 is "Schleiermacher as Public Theologian in a time of Political Turmoil." In the spirit of this year’s conference theme (Valuing the Study of Religion in public spaces), the Schleiermacher Group invites proposals that help us understand and evaluate Schleiermacher’s contribution as a public theologian. We seek proposals that advance scholarship on Schleiermacher’s theory of state, public stance on German identity, role in the Napoleonic wars, and role as hospital chaplain. We especially invite proposals that consider how the context of war and political turmoil shape theological constructions.

2) For a session on Schleiermacher and Mediating Theology to be co-sponsored with the Nineteenth Century Theology Group, we welcome proposals for papers that analyze strategies employed by Schleiermacher and subsequent representatives of Mediating Theology, broadly conceived, to reconcile the classical claims of the Christian faith with the epistemological and ethical demands of modernity.
