A perceptive study of how Catholic views of revelation can represent a retrieval of important findings from the Enlightenment. Since the Enlightenment, traditional notions of revelation have been critiqued or abandoned entirely. Kaplan examines some of the well-known and lesser-known figures in the Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment, showing that a Catholic retrieval of revelation is possible and even preferable to alternative paths. Major themes and figures include G.E. Lessing, Immanual Kant, Johann Gottlieb Fichte, and Johannes Kuhn, as well as Friedrich Schelling's later, often ignored philosophy of revelation.
