About the Event

Religious Enlightenment

  

For many scholars of the Enlightenment period, references of religious enlightenment might seem to constitute a case of confusion among different sets of problems and proposed solutions – if not altogether a complete misunderstanding. Such convictions might be especially prevalent among those who measure the achievements of the period by reference to the French Enlightenment. Different optics might seem more fitting for those who are of the opinion that the British or German Enlightenment diverged substantially from the French when it came to the attitudes towards religion and religiosity. Max Weber is the example of one such scholar of western culture. In his Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, Weber pointed to the existence not only of different types if religious enlightenment, but also attempted a demonstration that some among them played a more significant social role than others. Those that ended up playing leading roles were inspiring and strengthening the “spirit of capitalism” and would turn alongside it into badges of honor of the western world. Obviously, one need not concur with the views of M. Weber. There is no shortage of scholars, of course, who do not subscribe to his views. However, even they admit that his ideas contained a fair dose of originality. In my reflections concerning religious enlightenment, I would first recapitulate Weber’s positions. While I have some reservations when it comes to them, their presentation is necessary to introduce the two “actors” of modern times distinguished by M. Weber: puritanism and pietism.
