Abstract
In this dissertation, I analyze, critique, and correct Schleiermacher's doctrine of God as presented in the Glaubenslehre (The Christian Faith). Reading the work backwards, I highlight the important and lasting contributions Schleiermacher has made to Christian theology, even as I critique his ultimately non-personal understanding of God. I argue that were his doctrine of God bolstered by an additional kataphatic notion, namely, a non-anthropomorphic and non-anthropocentric understanding of God as personal, his theology could better contribute to feminist theological projects.
