Der Friedensbegriff Johann Rists am Beispiel des Friedensspiels ‘Das Friedewünschende Teutschland’ (1647)

image of Daphnis

Johann Rist has been put in an irenic context by the scholarly community almost exclusively by tracing his academic career and focussing on his inclusion in the Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft in 1647. These points, however, can only serve as a frame for Rist’s irenic mentality and conduct, which is is revealed much more clearly in his works. In particular, his Friedewünschendes Teutschland (1647) proves to be a peace play, with which Rist presents himself not as a theologian promoting the polemical charge of the confessional conflict situation, but as a religious poet who calls for peace between the confessions through the use of allegorical characters. The relational view of his language and cultural patriotism and his moderate Lutheran faith in combination with his concept of a divinely animated nature provide a formative moment in the attempted reconciliation of the confessions and the imagined attainment of (temporal) peace.
