Gotthold Ephraim Lessings Nathan der Weise in einer spannenden Hörspiel-Fassung für alle Generationen. Erleben Sie Nathan der Weise von jungen Schauspielern im Original szenisch gelesen und mit lebhaften Hörspielszenen illustriert. Ein Erzähler führt durch die Handlung und erläutert das Werk. Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (1729 bis 1781) hat als Humanist und Dichter der deutschen Aufklärung die Entwicklung des modernen Theaters vorangetrieben. Sein Drama Nathan der Weise ist vom Toleranzgedanken geprägt. Zur Zeit der Kreuzzüge treffen in Jerusalem Vertreter der drei großen Weltreligionen durch eine Laune des Schicksals aufeinander. Recha, die Ziehtochter des jüdischen Händlers Nathan, wurde vom christlichen Tempelherrn aus einem brennenden Haus gerettet. Dieser wiederum verdankt sein Leben dem muslimischen Sultan Saladin, der im Tempelritter eine Ähnlichkeit zu seinem verstorbenen Bruder bemerkt. Bei einem Zusammentreffen fragt der Sultan Nathan nach der "wahren Religion". Und Lessing lässt ihn mit der Ringparabel antworten

3 editions published in 1888 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nathan the Wise is the Western classic on religious tolerance. It offers a vision of Jews, Christian and Muslims as People of the Book, united by a shared and reverenced text, mutually respectful, giving one another rich gifts of particularity. In Jersalem in 1192, at the time of the Third Crusade, the Muslim sultan Saladin declares a truce in which Muslim, Christian and Jew are to live in harmony. The fragile peace is broken by a fiery young Templar and further threatened by Saladin's sister, the lady Sittah, and Heraklios, the Christian patriarch. Nathan is a wise and wealthy Jewish merchant whose wealth is sought by Sittah and Heraklios. The Christian Templar rescues Nathan's precocious daughter Recha from a fire. The two young people, Jew and Christian, are drawn to each other in love, a love which is fostered by Recha's nurse, Daya. Aided by a ubiquitous friar and a picaresque dervish, the two young people come up with an imaginative resolution to the issue of which is the one true faith, during the trial at which Nathan must defend his life."--Publisher's website
