The Osnabrück statesman Justus Möser (1720–1794) participated in the discourse on religion during the Enlightenment with original contributions. Overall emerged an impressively coherent functional theory of religion, whose solid pragmatic approach was aimed to show the sociopolitical indispensability of Christianity. As part of the theory of religion that developed during the Enlightenment, Möser's blueprint is of outstanding importance.
