Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

David Friedrich Strauss (January 27, 1808 – February 8, 1874) was a German apostate Christian theologian and writer. He scandalized Christian Europe with his portrayal of the "historical Jesus", whose divine nature he denied. His work was connected to the Tübingen School, which revolutionized study of the New Testament, early Christianity, and ancient religions. Strauss was a pioneer in the historical investigation of Jesus.
