Theologian, Philosopher and Social Critic
Distributed for Museum Tusculanum Press
Primarily known as the object of Søren Kierkegaard’s attack on the Danish State Church, Hans Lassen Martensen in fact was a celebrated figure of his time who is now enjoying renewed interest by contemporary scholars keen to explore his impressive and diverse literary corpus. In this anthology, Jon Stewart brings together the best articles by these scholars to engage with Martensen’s remarkable range of writings, including philosophical treatises, theological tracts, sermons, reviews, and polemical and occasional pieces. In collecting this scholarship, Stewart demonstrates that the problems Martensen addressed in the Danish Golden Age are still very much with us today.
