The Practical Value of Religion
Transcripts & Translations


[Underlined: Ritschl] (The Practical Value of Religion) For him religion is practical rather than speculation. Religion came to solve a practical tension. "In every religion what is sought, with the help of superhuman spiritual power reverenced by man, is a solution of the contraction in which man finds himself as both a part of nature and a spiritual personality claiming to dominate nature." Justification and Reconciliation, p[age] 199
