Spaces of Modern Theology Summary

Spaces of Modern Theology: Geography and Power in Schleiermacher's World by Graham Ward

As stories of borders, territorial disputes, and migration have escalated in recent years, so too space has emerged as a critical concept in theoretical literature. This book explores the imagination of space at the dawn of modern, liberal theology in the writings of Friedrich Schleiermacher. Schleiermacher wrote against the backdrop of expanding European colonialism and nationalism, providing a powerful ethics of space for a rapidly shrinking planet. Selectively appropriated, Schleiermacher's spaces of modern theology can be a valuable contribution to contemporary attempts to theorize the importance of space and place in human geographies.

Spaces of Modern Theology Reviews

Innovative and imaginative, Dr. Jungkeit's study of Schleiermacher's spatial imagination offers not only a new reading of Schleiermacher, but also rich methodological insights in interpreting space, geography, and desire in modern theology. This is one of the most exciting works on Schleiermacher I have read in a long time. I highly recommend it. - Kwok Pui-lan, Episcopal Divinity School, and author of Postcolonial Imagination and Feminist Theology

Steven Jungkeit's perceptive, cogent, and illuminating book makes a powerful case that Schleiermacher's spatial imagination invented a home for modernized religion in his time and offers clues for a compelling liberal theology in our very different time. - Gary Dorrien, Union Theological Seminary and Columbia University

Jungkeit opens up a fascinating world of possibilities in Spaces of Modern Theology. He gives us an entre into how Schleiermacher's world might breathe new life into ours as we face modern day issues of power and the varieties of spaces it inhabits in this age of new globalization. - Emilie M. Townes, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of African American Religion and Theology, Yale Divinity School
