VAN AARDE, Andries G.. Multifarious facets in the thinking of the elusive Friedrich Schleiermacher (21 November 1768 - 12 February 1834). Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2019, vol.75, n.4, pp.1-7. ISSN 2072-8050.

This article forms part of the commemoration of Friedrich Schleiermacher, who died 185 years ago on 12 February 1834. It focuses on the aspects of Schleiermacher's life and work that have influenced the author the most. The article consists of personal annotations, Schleiermacher's understanding of 'divine' hermeneutics, his notion of congeniality and his 'subscription' to creedal Christianity while promoting the freedom of the exegete to interpret the Bible and ecclesiastical confessions robustly and critically.

Keywords : Friedrich Schleiermacher; Hermeneutics; Congeniality; Subscription to confessions; Theōsis.
