With the admirable mix of erudition, incisiveness, and originality that charac-terizes all of his writings, Hans G. Kippenberg, in Discovering Religious History in the Modern Age (German original as Die Entdeckung der Religions-geschichte), argues that many of the leading modern theorists of religion, far from rejecting religion for science and modernity, saw religion as surviving in modernity, and surviving not as a mere relic of an outdated past but as an ongoing aspect of culture that transcended the bounds of science.
