Vridar Musings on biblical studies, politics, religion, ethics, human nature, tidbits from science. He was a brilliant man who crossed paths and kept company with such notable contemporary Germans as Hegel, Marx, and Nietzsche. He became professor of theology in —first in Berlin then later in Bonn—but by his radical rationalism provoked his academic superiors to revoke his teaching license.
Insolent and defiant, he pissed off a lot of academics. This particular book is noteworthy as an influence on what would come to be known as the Dutch Radical school Loman, Van Manen, Pierson, van den Bergh van Eysinga, et al.
Bauer may have been scandalous, but he was far from obscure in his day. He was notorious. An interesting discussion of Christ and the Caesars follows. The following two tabs change content below.

In Berlin, on April 13, a man died who once played a role as a philosopher and a theologian, but was hardly heard of for years, only attracting the attention of the public from time to time as a "literary eccentric". Official theologians, including Renan, wrote him off and, therefore, maintained a silence of death about him. And yet he was worth more than them all and did more than all of them in a question which interests us Socialists, too: the question of the historical origin of Christianity. On the occassion of his death, let us give a brief account of the present position on this question, and Bauer's contribution to its solution. The view that dominated from the free-thinkers of the Middle Ages to the Enlighteners of the 18th century, the latter included, that all religions, and therefore Christianity too, were the work of deceivers was no longer sufficient after Hegel had set philosophy the task of showing a rational evolution in world history. It is clear that if spontaneously arising religions — like the fetish worship of the Negroes or the common primitive religion of the Aryans — come to being without deception playing any part, deception by the priests soon becomes inevitable in their further development. But, in spite of all sincere fanaticism, artificial religions cannot even, at their foundation, do without deception and falsification of history.
