One of the most fascinating characteristics of the Age of Enlightenment is that processes of rationalization and self-reflection were able to transcend denominational boundaries. This often resulted in an opening of the concept of religion. Based on this, Björn Pecina develops an understanding of religion by dealing with the works of two distinguished scholars in particular: Moses Mendelssohn and Johann Friedrich Wilhelm Jerusalem.
One of the most fascinating characteristics of the Age of Enlightenment is that processes of rationalization and self-reflection were able to transcend denominational boundaries. This often resulted in an opening of the concept of religion which proved to be extraordinarily capable of integration. Based on this, Björn Pecina develops an understanding of religion by dealing with the works of two distinguished scholars in particular: Moses Mendelssohn and Johann Friedrich Wilhelm Jerusalem. Jerusalem is representative of the Age of Enlightenment and is well suited to embody this era in keeping with its religio-theoretical image and at the same time in revealing consistencies. The study focuses on Mendelssohn, who succeeds in balancing a distinctive religion and an enlightened philosophy of religion.
