Educated by the Moravian Brethren (Herrnhuters) and at the University of Halle, Schleiermacher was ordained a priest in 1794 and began his career as a Reformed preacher in Berlin. From 1804 to 1807, he was professor of theology at Halle, and from 1810 he held the same position in Berlin. His first major work was On Religion: Speeches to Its Cultural Despisers (1799). His most important work, The Christian Faith, appeared in 1821. He was a good friend of Von Schlegel, whom he had met in Berlin. Other notable works include The Soliloquies (1800), Christmas Eve (1806) and A Brief Outline of the Study of Theology (1811). Schleiermacher became known as the "Father of Modern Theology", and was instrumental in establishing the United Church of Prussia.
