Within Christianity we may see a great popular protest against philosophy: the reasoning of the sages of antiquity had advised men against the influence of the emotions but Christianity wishes to brin emotions back again.  With this aim in view it denies any moral value to virtue such as philosophers understood it—as a victory of reason over the passions—condemns rationality in general and calls upon the passions to manifest themselves in their full power and glory: as love of God fear of God fanatic belief in God blind hope in God.
