Abstract:

This book is the first anthology of writings to be devoted to Icelandic theologian and religious writer Magnús Eiríksson (1806-81). A contemporary of Kierkegaard, Eiríksson made a name (and enemies) for himself by being an outspoken advocate of tolerance and freedom of thought and conscience in matters of religion. This book aims to resurrect Eiríksson's thought for a new era, with contributions covering the key topics of his writings and offering insight into his historical and cultural background. By explaining Eiríksson's frequent disagreements with his contemporaries, including Kierkegaard, the contributors shed light on the period as a whole and offer a new perspective on religious thought in the Danish Golden Age.
