Modern philosophy of religion after Hegel has often spoken of the absoluteness of Christianity, as evidenced by the classical work of E. Troeltsch Die Absolutheit des Christentums und die Religionsgeschichte (1902), and the twentieth-century philosophy of religion continued to take seriously this issue. However, in the last part of the twentieth century, with the pluralistic turn in philosophy of religion promoted by J. Hick, the issue has lost interest and, on the contrary, it has become customary to claim a non-absoluteness of Christianity. In my paper, I will try: a) to clarify the meaning of the absoluteness of Christianity in modern and contemporary philosophy of religion, b) to offer a critical assessment of Hick’s refutation of the absoluteness of Christianity, c) to propose a cumulative case for the absoluteness of Christianity.
