I was wondering whether the participants here in this forum were aware of the play "Nathan the Wise" by 18th century, enlightenment-era German writer & philosopher G.E. Lessing.

In modern Germany, pretty much everyone with a higher education knows it, if not by heart, certainly by its humanist message of religious tolerance. Maybe something to add to the vacation reading list, or so.

Yep.  Studied it in my college dayz (which was a few decades ago.)  All good IMHO and quite a refreshing change from the majority of antisemitic publications circulating at the time.
