Schmitt's first chapter in his book entitled Political Theology: Four Chapters on the Concept of Sovereignty offers an overview of the historical development of the concept of sovereignty but is silent on political theology. Enlightened theology and metaphysics rejected “not only the transgression of the laws of nature through an exception brought about by direct divine intervention (as is found in the idea of a miracle), but also the sovereign's direct intervention in an established legal order.” Enlightened rationalism gave way to positivism and the more and more exclusive sway of natural-scientific methodology, expunging the last ethical-religious remnants of the earlier period.

Keywords:   theology, metaphysics, transgression, intervention, methodology
