Editorial Reviews

Review

"Some readers may be more interested in Howard's contribution to theoretical arguments about the nature of secularity. Others may be drawn more by the power of his narrative. Both sorts will be richly rewarded." First Things

"Burckhardt emerges...as a serious interlocutor who can illuminate the content of contemporary experience and help clarify the implications of current historicist perspectives... It is a striking example...of how the reconstruction of historical cultural contexts should not bury the dead in the past worlds but allow them to speak in ours." John E. Toes, Central European History

Book Description

Concentrating upon the meeting of German theologian W. M. L. de Wette and Swiss-German historian Jacob Burckhardt, this book demonstrates the centrality of theological concerns and forms of knowledge in the emergence of modern, secular historical consciousness.
