Sulzer, who is known mainly for his theory of art, was an ordained minister, which is seldom mentioned in the discussion of his work. However, his theological leanings had major impact on his work. The article presents his discussion of physico-theology and its importance for proper upbringing of children. Also, his views on the nature of God are delineated. Sulzer was adamant about his theological views, however, he presented them in a nonconfessional manner, thereby reaching in his times a rather large readership.
