Schleiermachers Kirchengeschichte by Simon Gerber

English summary: As a protestant theologian, philosopher, Plato translator, churchman and pedagog, Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768-1834) was one of the greatest men of his time, yet his work on church history has been hitherto little investigated. Simon Gerber sets out to change that and offer new avenues into Schleiermacher's work and thinking. The author deals with Schleiermacher's work on church history within the context of his philosophical and theological systems, while also paying attention to the historical and theological debates of the time. Schleiermacher gave three lectures on church history but his work here encompassed much more and included a theological encyclopaedia, teachings on Christian ethics and essays on the history of dogma. According to Schleiermacher, church history reveals Christianity as an effective force in the world for establishing community and creating history. The author portrays how Schleiermacher reconstructed the Christian church's development and how he interpreted and judged characters, occurrences and institutions. German description: Simon Gerber untersucht Friedrich Schleiermachers bisher wenig erforschte Arbeiten zur Kirchengeschichte im Zusammenhang des philosophisch-theologischen Systems Schleiermachers, aber auch der geschichtstheoretischen und theologischen Debatten seiner Zeit. Dreimal hielt Schleiermacher Vorlesungen uber die Kirchengeschichte; doch auch andere Arbeiten wie die theologische Enzyklopadie, die christliche Sittenlehre und dogmengeschichtliche Aufsatze werden thematisiert. Die Kirchengeschichte zeigt laut Schleiermacher das Christentum als Idee und Kraft, die in der Welt wirkt, Gemeinschaft stiftet und Geschichte macht. Simon Gerber zeichnet in dieser Arbeit nach, wie Schleiermacher die geschichtliche Entwicklung der christlichen Kirche rekonstruiert und wie er Gestalten, Ereignisse und Institutionen deutet und beurteilt.
