Volume contains fifteen extant sermons and four extant sermon outlines that span a period of 43 years, from 1791 to 1834. What marks these sermons as special is not only their timing and context but also their finding ways to anticipate a conjoining of more general (secular) and religious Christian actions and their corresponding points of view. The study also contains a brief review of To Cecilie, On What Gives Value to Life, the Soliloquies, and Christmas Eve: A Dialogue, works written within the time frame of the first five New Year Sermons. These works offer insight into Schleiermacher’s appreciation of human frailty, of moral development, and enhance the readings of the New Year sermons
