Ferdinand Christian Baur (1792–1860) was professor of Protestant theology at the University of Tübingen from 1826 until his death. He first became famous for his innovative theories about the New Testament, but his academic responsibility included church history and history of dogma as well. His monographs set new standards for historical–critical theology, and he became the leader of the influential Tübingen School in the mid-nineteenth century. The Editorial Introduction focuses on Baur’s relationship to Hegel, his appropriation of the Hegelian method for his work in history, his interpretation of Hegel’s christology, and his advocacy of a Hegelian “middle” position. It provides an overview of Baur’s enormous intellectual achievements and a summary of the book translated in this volume.
