Contemporary philosophy of religion almost allergically reacts to metaphysics. It does so because of the various critiques of the potential reach of reason, which each in their own way argue that God cannot be appropriately approached via autonomous reason. In this article, I argue, on the one hand, that these critiques are furtively inspired by a certain outlook on transcendence, which I call the 'Protestant view' and, on the other hand, that numerous contemporary philosophers of religion are slowly starting to appreciate a more 'Catholic view' on transcendence, which allows for a more metaphysically ambitious philosophy of religion.
