On December 4th, Albert Einstein’s “God letter”, addressed to the philosopher Eric Gutkind, was auctioned off for $2,892,500 and became the most expensive Einstein letter ever sold.

Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who transformed humankind’s understanding of nature and the universe. He laid the foundation for modern physics and changed the views on space, time, energy and mass. He is best known for proposing the theory of relativity and his mass-energy equivalence formula. In 1921 Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics “for his services to theoretical physics and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect”.

However, his achievements in physics were not his only contributions people took interest in. Einstein’s views on religion have always been of interest, as many people sought to understand his beliefs. Finally, in 2008 a letter was released to the public, in which the famous scientists made a powerful statement on religion.

This testimonial of the famous scientist’s views on religious was written in January of 1954, just a year before his death. The so-called “God letter” was addressed to Gutkind as a response to his book “Choose Life: The Biblical Call to Revolt”.

The letter became one of a few sources that defined Einstein’s stance on religion.
