Historian of religion, theologian, and philosopher Ernst Troeltsch is born in Haunstetten, Germany. As a historian of Christian religion and culture, Ernst Troeltsch will argue that cultural values are dependent upon historical and cultural circumstances.

One consequence of this is that there can be no absolute values which transcend history. Another is that religions, including Christianity, do not transmit any absolute values - an idea which was shocking to many devout Christians.
