As a result of the problem how revelation could be understood as an eternal event, Schelling developed a new theory of a double eternity. Drawing on said theory, he was also able to solve the problem how time itself could begin. The aim of this article is to reconstruct Schelling’s way of developing this theory in comparison with the state of theory of eternity of its time. It shows that Schelling’s investigation also included a new view on the state of tense (past, present and future) which Schelling took as an important part of each time philosophy.
