Funeral Pile: Thoughts of Great Heretics by Kurt Eggers

Translated from the Third original Der Scheiterhaufen – Worte großer Ketzer published by Kurt Eggers. Most of these quite anti-Christian quotations date from the 14h to 19th century, although some go all the way back to the 4th century Roman Emperor Julian. The men quoted include, but are not limited to, the following: Hoffmann von Fallersleben (composer of the German national anthem), Georg Herwegh, Walther v. d. Vogelreide, Frederick the Great (including his delightful “Ode to the Prussians”), Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Goethe, Schiller, Kant, Grillparzer, Lagarde, Bismarck. Gneisenau, H. St. Chamberlain, Ernst Moritz Arndt, Heder, Ulrich von Hutten, Christian Wagner, Christian Wernicke, Adolf Stöber, Friedrich Hebbel and Carl Julius Weber. All in all, quite a collection. And definitely iconoclastic!
