And so, responding to Adolf von Harnack, he described an “essence” of Christianity that could give his historical narratives purpose and direction. The essence helped Troeltsch move from historical descriptions to normative claims.

They display the deepest difficulty: we turn to culture seeking norms, but then the culture lets us down. The people don’t believe what we need them to believe. The history does not prove our point. And so we are tempted to refashion our account of what we take to be real to get it to do the work we need it to do.
