Editorial Reviews


"Protestant Theology and the Making of the Modern German University makes a welcome contribution to understanding the oddness of theology in the context of the modern research university."--Donald Wibe, Toronto Journal of Theology

"Howard's book is a welcome addition to studies of nineteenth-century Christian thought, modern intellectual history, and university history. Ably researched and skillfully written, the work distinguishes itself from common fare by its interdisciplinary reach. Howard's presentation is itself a thought-provoking testament to "Berlin's" legacy." --Church History

"Howard's story tells how ingenious leaders, chiefly Friedrich Schleiermacher, rescued the study of theology when German universities made a wholesale turn toward dominance by science and the state. The ironic result was that German theology became an arbiter for all of Christendom while departments of theology in German universities were hanging on by their fingernails. Whether they sacrificed requisite independence to do so is the question that Howard raises masterfully at the end."--Christian Century
