This chapter explores the ideas of Benjamin Jowett. Like the older German rationalists, he treated morality as the touchstone for the authentically religious: religion manifests itself in the individual as morality and everything moral is attributable to God. For him, all reality is spiritual in nature.

Keywords:   Benjamin Jowett, authentic religion, morality, spirituality
