Supervised by Michael Bergunder at Heidelberg, this PhD thesis outlines Ernst Troeltsch’s Theology of Religion (Part I) and investigates the sources of that Theology (Part II). It concludes that judging by the latter, Troeltsch’s Theology with its notion of Christianity as a religion cannot be understood merely in terms of a continuation of early 19th century (and earlier) traditions but draws on an entirely new, global, perspective on religion, which emerged in the late 19th century.
