Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book Visions of the Enlightenment presets a list of all texts (120) published in response to the Edict on Religion of 1788. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. Using Johann Christoph Woellner as a window onto eighteenth-century Prussia, the book argues that the Enlightenment there was a politically and socially exclusive movement, rather than an emancipatory one. Woellner's most infamous contribution to Prussian history came in 1788, with the promulgation of two edicts, the Edict on Religion and the Edict on Censorship; the former gave the state control over religious teachings and the latter, in turn, authorized the state to censor works that were critical of the former.

Keywords: Edict on Religion; Enlightenment; Johann Christoph Woellner
