This volume unites the two autobiographical works written by the prominent theologian of the Enlightenment, Johann Joachim Spalding (1714–1804). It provides the Letters from Mr. Spalding to Mr. Gleim, written between 1746 and 1757, along with a critical edition of the complete handwritten originals. They shed light on an important phase in the life of a man who was later to become provost and the head of the consistory in Berlin. Johann Joachim Spalding's Biography, As Written by Himself, is a mercilessly frank account of the author's life, expanded and published by his son, Georg Ludewig Spalding, shortly after his father's death in 1804. It holds the key not only to Spalding's life and works but also to a period in church and intellectual history to which he was a witness.
