Marsilio Ficino and the Religion of the Philosophers
CitationHankins, James. 2008. Marsilio Ficino and the Religion of the Philosophers. Rinascimento 48, forthcoming.
AbstractThis essay seeks to characterize the way Marsilio Ficino thought about the relationship of philosophical reason and religious belief. It argues that Ficino is conservative in his theological method but that his theory of the sources of religious knowledge and his views on the place of Christianity in the family of world religions are much more innovative and point forward to Rousseau and theologians of the Romantic period such as Schleiermacher.
