Peter Ernst von Lasaulx
Ernst von Lasaulx was born as the son of Koblenz Catholic architect Johann Claudius von Lassaulx ( March 27, 1781 to October 14, 1848). The family was in close contact, inter alia, to Guido and Joseph Gorres and Clemens Brentano. In the years 1824-1830 Lasaulx studied classical philology at the University of Bonn; his teachers included, among other things, August Wilhelm Schlegel and Barthold Georg Niebuhr. In 1824 he became a member of the Old Bonner fraternity.
1830 sought Lasaulx in the libraries of St. Florian, Kremsmuenster, Mölk and Kloster- Neuburg by writings of Meister Eckhart. The income he did not bring himself to publication, but eventually handed the finds from Melk, Munich, Vienna and Koblenz to Franz Pfeiffer, who used these preparations for his Eckhart output.
After long journeys in Southern Europe and the Orient Lasaulx 1835 only associate in 1837 then Associate Professor at the University of Würzburg. 1844 Lasaulx was Professor of philology and aesthetics at the University of Munich and a member of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. 1847, the teaching license was revoked because of his royal critical attitude in the affair of Lola Montez.
From 18 May 1848 to May 7, 1849 Lasaulx represented the second Lower Bavarian constituency Abensberg in the Frankfurt National Assembly. There he represented conservative, aimed at strengthening the monarchy and church positions as a member of the Group of Café Milani.
1849 Lasaulx got back his teaching license. In the same year he received a mandate in the chamber of deputies in the Bavarian Parliament, where he remained until his death. From 1856 to 1857 he was rector of the University of Munich.
In religious and philosophical writings Lasaulx tried to demonstrate a basic unit of the ethical attitudes of ancient and Christian people, for example in parallel with Socrates and Jesus. His religious and philosophical views led to conflict with the Catholic Church.
Four of his works were placed after his death for allegedly " Gnostic, pantheisierender tendencies" on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum the Catholic Church ( for example, because Lasaulx so yes the revelatory character of Christianity into question ).
Lasaulx was barely rezipiert soon after his death, again only in the 20th century, especially through the work of Jacob Burckhardt. Hans -Joachim Schoeps found in him a " precursor Spengler " (1953), namely because, as Carl Friedrich Vollgraff ( which he owes a lot anyway ), the general belief in progress of the Enlightenment distrusted.
