„Wir bleiben […] bei dem Urteil, daß wir im Glauben den Türken nahestehen.“
“We continue to insist that we are close in faith to the Turks.” – Wilhelm Herrmann’s political-theological interpretation of Islam in 1915Herrmann’s remarkably positive appreciation of Islam is obviously prompted by the political-military situation at the beginning of the First World War. Nevertheless it is also a consequence of his late, broad, and quite individualistic understanding of religion, which is characterized by a first stage of religion as voluntary submission to One. This submission includes a strong antinomy between activity and passivity which Herrmann interprets as an expression of God’s revelation in Jesus Christ. So, according to Herrmann, there remains a barrier which Islam cannot overcome: Islam does not recognize the grace of God in Jesus Christ despite all its closeness to Christianity in obedience and submission.
