Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with Freud’s attitude towards religion. It developed from a rather ironic and anecdotal criticism in his youth to fundamental writings about the origin and the future of religion in his later life. Freud believed that "the voice of the intellect is a soft one, but it does not rest till it has gained a hearing” and would overcome religion. Because of the "undeniable conflict” between religion and science Freud expressed his strong opinion, that all believers should be prevented from attending university.
