Written in reaction to the excessive rationalism of the Eighteenth-century Enlightenment, and much influenced by the contemporary philosophies of Spinoza, Leibnitz, and Kant, Schleiermacher's "Speeches on Religion", published in 1799, "attempt(ed) to win the educated classes back to religion, which he define(d) romantically as 'a sense and taste for the infinite'. Contending that religion was based on intuition and feeling, and independent of all dogma, he saw its highest experience in a sensation of union with the infinite." (Cross, p. 1243) In his time, Schleiermacher was regarded by many as the greatest Protestant thinker since the Reformation, and his influence on generations of theologians, especially Ritschl, Harnack, and Troeltsch, was enormous.
