"'Once in the East there lived a man who owned a ring of unimaginable worth...'" "Jerusalem, 1192. An uneasy stalemate exists between the Muslim forces of Saladin and the western Crusaders. Caught in the middle, the Jews. All sides respect Nathan for his wisdom and his wealth. But in a war-zone no one is secure." "Banned by the Nazis, Lessing's 18th-century masterpiece is a passionate plea for religious tolerance."--BOOK JACKET
Die Erziehung des Menschengeschlechts by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing( )

182 editions published between 1780 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 2,539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El autor relaciona el desarrollo del pensamiento religioso con tres diferentes estadios del género humano. El judaísmo habría sido la infancia y el cristianismo la juventud, pero la tercera fase de madurez aún espera en el futuro. Para Lessing, la verdadera edad de oro no está en el pasado sino en el provenir: le corresponde a la humanidad desde siempre y en todo tiempo. Le humanidad explicita su esencia y alcanza su destino en los lentos pasos del devenir histórico y Dios dirige el proceso que le aproxima a la manifestación de sus potencialidades

The Hamburg Dramaturgy (German: Hamburgische Dramaturgie) is a highly influential work on drama by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, written between 1767 and 1769 when he worked as a dramaturg for Abel Seyler's Hamburg National Theatre. It was not originally conceived as a unified and systematical book, but rather as series of essays on the theater, which Lessing wrote as commentary on the plays of the short-lived Hamburg National Theater. This collection of 101 short essays represents one of the first sustained critical engagements with the potential of theater as a vehicle for the advancement of humanistic discourse. In many ways, the Hamburg Dramaturgy defined the new field of dramaturgy, and also introduced the term

Nathan der Weise : ein dramatisches Gedicht in fünf Aufzügen by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing( Book )

270 editions published between 1779 and 2021 in 4 languages and held by 1,196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dramatic poem that symbolizes the equality of the three great religions (Islam, Saladin; Christianity, the Templar; Judaism, Nathan) in regard to their ethical basis, for the play celebrates man's true religion: love, acting without prejudice and devoted to the service of mankind. One of the outstanding representatives of the German Enlightenment, Lessing was devoted to the principles of religious and social tolerance. Nathan the Wise was Lessing's drama inspired by his friendship with Moses Mendelssohn. Based upon the parable of the three rings adapted from Boccaccio's Decameron, the play presents Judaism, Christianity and Islam as the three sons of a benevolent father who has given each an identical ring, although each claim that his ring alone is authentic. Enter the Nathan figure, who calls for an understanding of mutual belief between the three religions, thus echoing the aspirations of the Enlightenment: Tolerance, brotherhood and love of all humanity. The message of the work was considered threatening enough to the Church that they forbade all performances. See A. Altmann, Moses Mendelssohn: A Biographical Study (1973) pp. 569-80; Cf.

Mit dem 1772 erschienenen und uraufgeführten Drama Emilia Galotti schuf Gotthold Ephraim Lessing eines der bedeutendsten Beispiele für die Gattung des bürgerlichen Trauerspiels. Das Stück, das zu den Schlüsselwerken der Aufklärung und Empfindsamkeit gehört sowie als eines der ersten politischen Dramen der deutschen Literatur gilt, übt scharfe Kritik an der Willkürherrschaft des Adels. Die Studienausgabe basiert auf einem philologisch-analytischen Umgang mit dem vom Autor überwachten Erstdruck und seinen handschriftlichen Vorstufen. -- [éditeur]

"Though starting from a deist standpoint, Lessing raised the questions that have dominated theology up to our own time ... Progressive revelation, historical inevitability, the relation between natural and supernatural, or between faith and historical events--all these issues were foreseen by Lessing. The volume contains nine of his short treatises, all provocative"--The Times Literary Supplement
