9780227173275: Religion and the Rise of History: Martin Luther and the Cultural Revolution in Germany, 1760-1810

This is the first intellectual history to study the ideal-type of model-building methodology of Otto Hintze (1861-1940) to Western historical thought and to suggest that Martin Luther also held to a way that was deeply incarnational, dynamic, and/or 'in-with-and-under'. This dual vision and 'a Lutheran ethos' strongly influenced Leibniz, Hamann, and Herder, and was therefore a matter of considerable significance for the rise of a distinctly modern form of historical consciousness in Protestant Germany. Smith's essay suggests a new time period for the formative age of modern German thought, culture, and education: 'The Cultural Revolution in Germany'.

About the Author:

Leonard S. Smith is Emeritus Professor of History at California Lutheran University, Thousand Oaks, California.

Review:

"Leonard Smith's book is, in its origins and goals, a deeply pedagogical work. He addresses a central problem in the history of eighteenth-century German and European thought, the emergence of a new, evolutionary view of history called 'historicism.' Enabled by Luther's incarnational theology, historicism received its first formulation, Smith argues, from Leibniz and his successors and achieved its public place in the new University of Berlin (est. 1810). This book is a splendid marriage of classical themes with new and original insights. Everyone interested in the evolution of European historical thought should read it." --Thomas A. Brady Jr, University of California, Berkeley "This book breaks new ground in showing how Martin Luther shaped the philosophical pioneers of a new worldview based upon the study of history. A textbook for minds curious about a philosophy of history." --Eric W. Gritsch, Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary "A wide-ranging intellectual history of the emergence in Germany of a modern historical consciousness." --Dale A. Johnson, Vanderbilt University
