Ritschl's Critique of Schleiermacher's Theological Ethics

Journal of Religious Ethics 17 (2):51 - 72 (1989)
The interpreter of Friedrich Schleiermacher's theological ethics faces an historical paradox: on the one hand, Schleiermacher's theological ethics have been judged by many to be inadequate, and on the other hand, careful analysis of his major work in theological ethics ("Die christliche Sitte" or "Sittenlehre") is lacking. This essay considers Albrecht Ritschl's complaint about the status of the ethical in Schleiermacher's theological system and responds with an analysis of the latter's view of theology and of Christian piety. It concludes that Schleiermacher accords ethics a definite and significant place in his theological system.
