xxvi & 633 pp. pages; Contemporary black half morocco over pattern-printed marbled boards, four raised bands on the spine, titled in gilt letters stamped directly in the second panel. Minor rubbing to the joints and edges of the boards, private bookplate, no other marks. Text clean, but the leaves show minor toning and browning. This is the third edition of David Friedrich Strauss's second life of Jesus. OCLC: 246584083 The author's earlier life of Jesus [Das Leben Jesu kritisch bearbeitet (Tubingen: 1835-1836)] had scandalized Christian Europe with his portrayal of the "historical Jesus," whose divine nature he denied. His work was connected to the Tübingen School, which revolutionized study of the New Testament, early Christianity, and ancient religions. Strauss was a pioneer in the historical investigation of Jesus. One reviewer called it "the Iscariotism of our days" and another "the most pestilential book ever vomited out of the jaws of hell." When Strauss was elected to a chair of theology in the University of Zürich, the appointment provoked such controversy that the authorities decided to pension him before he began his duties. Strauss abandoned theological studies and teaching for about twenty years, devoting himself to marriage, literature, and even politics. But he returned to theology in 1862 by publishing a life of Hermann Samuel Reimarus (whom Albert Schweizer called the father of the school seeking an approach to the historical Jesus). Two years later, this second life of Jesus followed -- Life of Jesus for the German People (Das Leben Jesu für das deutsche Volk). The first edition appeared in 1862, (and a 13th edition appeared in 1904). Albert Schweitzer wrote in "The Quest of the Historical Jesus" (1906; English Translation - 1910), Strauss's arguments "filled in the death-certificates of a whole series of explanations which, at first sight, have all the air of being alive, but are not really so." He adds that there are two broad periods of academic research in the quest for the historical Jesus, namely, "the period before David Strauss and the period after David Strauss." ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. N° de ref. de la librería 40224
