The conference aims to explore original perspectives on theological-related subjects in the German Enlightenment up to Kant, with particular focus on the Late Enlightenment. Over the last few decades, the relevance of the theology of the Enlightenment has gained unprecedented momentum among scholars of the eighteenth century, going well beyond its traditional boundaries and arenas. The rapidly growing interest in the topic is reflected in an intense editorial activity that brought attention to lesser known texts. Key issues such as secularization and re-sacralization have raised questions that touch upon a range of disciplines. It is now clear that particularly during the second half of the eighteenth century metaphysics, aesthetics, epistemology, politics, ethnology, and the arts benefitted from fruitful exchanges with theology, resulting in a range of new approaches to the relation between the human and the divine.
