The requirement to set thinking aside in order to make room for faith

See Benedict XVI, ―Faith, Reason and the University‖: ―

Dehellenization first emerges in connection with the
postulates of the Reformation in the sixteenth century. Looking at the tradition of scholastic theology, the Reformers thought they were confronted with a faith system totally conditioned by philosophy, that is to say an articulation of the faith based on an alien system of thought. 

As a result, faith no longer appeared as a living historical Word but as one element of an overarching philosophical system. 

The principle of sola scriptura - Latin: by Scripture alone
 on the other hand, sought faith in its pure, primordial form, as originally found in the biblical Word. 
Metaphysics appeared as a premise derived from another source, from which faith had to be liberated in order to become once more fully itself. When Kant stated that he needed to set thinking aside in order to make room for faith

Khoury quotes a work of the noted French Islamist R. Arnaldez, who points out that Ibn Hazn went so far as to state that God is not bound even by his own word,and that nothing would oblige him to reveal the truth to us.

Thus, we may surmise, contributing to our notion that Muslims are moved irrationally and that their world is incomprehensible to us

Education was thus no longer directed toward people who were to be educated with a view to becoming fully developed human beings, but tospecialists, in order that they might train other specialist
