Nathan the Wise

Lessing‘s Play on Tolerance

Nathan the Wise by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing is considered one of the most important dramas of German literary history still today, 235 years after its premiere in Berlin on April 17, 1783. The notion of tolerance of the Age of Enlightenment concerning the various religions in their relationships to each other actually is what makes the play topical still today.
