It rests on the dual convictions that “religion” is an epistemological object that possesses a history and that the early nineteenth century occupies a transitional place in the shift from biblically-based to critical-historical approaches to thinking about religion. It will also yield some concluding reﬂ ections on the post-colonialist turn in recent historiography of religion.
