The pre-enlightenment period was defined by the holy truth. Like a child in the mother’s womb the Christian society believed that there is a god whom is invisible and directs the world.
Within the enlightenment it was perceived that from an outstanding point the mother can be identified and God is unmasked.
However, enlightenment moved the border for a God just a bit further to the outside. God is in this post-enlightened period at some specific point beyond the appearances.
