Scarce translation into Danish of Herder’s Von Gottes Sohn, der Welt Heiland, originally published in German in Riga in 1797. Herder (1744-1803), poet, philosopher, and theologian, was a pioneer in modern critical interpretation of the Gospels, and the present work, discussing the portrayal of Christ in the Gospel of St.John, is a sequel to an earlier book of his in which he had discussed Christ’s portrayal in the three other Gospels. The translation was done by Christian Gottlieb Zahle (1752-1817), a Protestant minister from Holstein.
