History and faith: Considering the ideas of Ernst Troeltsch
The work of Ernst Troeltsch (1865-1923) is an important contribution to the discussion on the relationship between faith and history. This article structures Troeltsch's work around his fundamental wrestling with historicism as a valid world view. His views on history and the philosophy of history are summarised, as well as his explanation of the theological task. These are followed by indicating some aspects of his philosophical paradigm. In conclusion some problems that Troeltsch tried to solve, are pointed out as relevant to our own situation.
