The Soul of Doubt

The Religious Roots of Unbelief from Luther to Marx

Dominic Erdozain

  • Interprets the rise of doubt and religious skepticism as an expression of Christian conscience and sensibility
  • Offers a bold reinterpretation of several Enlightenment thinkers, including Spinoza and Voltaire
  • Makes the controversial argument that Luther's iconic theology of faith counters Christian understandings of love, conscience and charity, thus triggering a crisis of skepticism
  • Portrays many well known enlightenment thinkers in a unique light that often runs counter to accepted scholarship
