Chapter Summary

Ferdinand Christian Baurs thinking is highly integrated, using dialectics both as an overall method and as a heuristic tool. It is no wonder that everything in his intellectual and spiritual world appears as dichotomies. In this dichotomising of reality, Jews and Judaism always end up on the negative side. The historiography is a major part of Baurs writing on Jews, largely because he interprets most things in terms of history, and theology is almost identified with history. Baur develops and stereotypes patterns found among earlier scholars, interpreting the development of the prehistory of early Christianity, as well as the development of early Christianity itself, in dialectical terms. Because of the dialectical model, Baur is able to allow for a certain, though not total, continuity with Judaism. Having grown in the soil of Judaism, Christianity has a natural relation to Judaismit is spiritualised Judaism.
