Friedrich Schleiermacher


Friedrich Schleiermacher (c. 1768-1834)

“All religious feelings are supernatural, for they are religious only insofar as they are produced directly by the universe; whether they are religious in oneself, each person must judge best.”

  • From Friedrich Schleiermacher’s On Religion: Speeches to its Cultured Despisers (second speech), translated by Richard Crouter (Cambridge University Press, 2012).
