This chapter examines the shape of contemporary religiosity with respect to the three identifying characteristics of Enlightenment religiosity: the unity thesis, the morality thesis, and toleration. These observations and comments are then used to support the claim that the spirit of Enlightenment religiosity, suitably tempered by two hundred years' hindsight, has much to offer us.

Keywords: Enlightenment; religiosity; unity thesis; morality thesis; toleration
