This chapter prepares the stage for reading Kierkegaard in context by presenting a biographical overview of his religious upbringing and theological education, the major intellectual influences and events in his life, and the nature and phrases of his writings as they unfolded in the historical and intellectual milieu of his time. It explores a tendency of some people to localize Kierkegaard by emphasizing the Danish context of his authorship. The chapter suggests that his writings should be viewed in the broader arena of European intellectual and sociopolitical developments in the first half of the 19th century.

Keywords:   biographical overview, religious upbringing, theological education, Søren Kierkegaard, 19th century
