From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Johann Wilhelm Herrmann (1846-1922) was a Reformed German theologian.

Hermann taught at Halle before becoming professor at Marburg. Influenced by Kant and Ritschl, his theology was in the idealist tradition, seeing God as the power of goodness. Jesus was to be seen as an exemplary man. Even if Jesus never existed, according to Herrmann, his traditional portrayal was still valid. His book The Communion of the Christian God was seen as a highlight of nineteenth century Liberal Christianity, against which Karl Barth and dialectical theology were later to react.
