Christian Systematic Theology Unit and Schleiermacher Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

The Schleiermacher unit promotes scholarship--from specialists and non-specialists alike--that critically engages the work of Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768-1834). We encourage historical, textual, and constructive analyses that open new lines of inquiry into Schleiermacher’s oeuvre and contribute to contemporary discussions in theology, religious studies, philosophy, ethics, and hermeneutics.

Call for Papers: 

To mark the recent publication of the first ever English-language critical edition of Friedrich Schleiermacher’s Christian Faith (Louisville: Westminster John Knox Press, 2016), the Schleiermacher Unit and the Christian Systematic Theology Unit invite paper proposals for a co-sponsored session on Schleiermacher’s theology. We welcome proposals for analytical or constructive (but not strictly historical) papers that treat Schleiermacher’s work in Christian Faith. Potential themes include, but are not limited to: the relationship between piety and doctrine, questions of tradition and authority, and the classical loci of systematic theology. We especially welcome proposals that explore what Schleiermacher’s substantive arguments in Christian Faith could contribute to contemporary conversations in theology.

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members until after final acceptance/rejection
