Church in the 19th Century - Part 19 - Goethe's Faust and The Myth of Progress

SKU: 3227D-19


Dr. David Allen White discusses Goethe, the greatest of German literary figures and an enormous influence on the nineteenth century. Goethe's Faust and the "Faustian" temptation that lies behind the modern myth of "Progress" is examined. Dr. White underlines the anti-Christian and downright demonic character of that modern substitute of faith. Taken from: Phoenix in a Fiery World: Church in the 19th Century - 1999 VonHildebrand Institute
