A. Ralph Waldo Emerson, a 19th century philosopher, poet, and essayist, started the Transcendentalism movement, which claimed that the importance of one's personal intuition in the attempt to experience the divine is greater than any religious doctrine is. --> the importance of something should be compared with importance of something else

B. The Transcendentalism movement, which claimed that the importance of one's personal intuition in the attempt to experience the divine is greater than any religious doctrine is, was started by Ralph Waldo Emerson, a 19th century philosopher, poet, and essayist. --> same as A

C. Ralph Waldo Emerson, a 19th century philosopher, poet, and essayist, started the Transcendentalism movement, which claimed that the importance of one's personal intuition in the attempt to experience the divine is greater than that of any religious doctrine. --> correct

D. Ralph Waldo Emerson, a 19th century philosopher, poet, and essayist, started the Transcendentalism movement, which claimed that the importance of one's personal intuition in the attempt to experience the divine is greater than any religious doctrine. --> same as A

E.

A. Ralph Waldo Emerson, a 19th century philosopher, poet, and essayist, started the Transcendentalism movement, which claimed that the importance of one's personal intuition in the attempt to experience the divine is greater than any religious doctrine is. -Incorrect. Comparison not clear -religious doctrine is

B. The Transcendentalism movement, which claimed that the importance of one's personal intuition in the attempt to experience the divine is greater than any religious doctrine is, was started by Ralph Waldo Emerson, a 19th century philosopher, poet, and essayist.Incorrect -same as A, just that the structure is a bit different

C. Ralph Waldo Emerson, a 19th century philosopher, poet, and essayist, started the Transcendentalism movement, which claimed that the importance of one's personal intuition in the attempt to experience the divine is greater than that of any religious doctrine.Correct, use of 'that' compares the importance of personal intuition to the importance of religious doctrine.

D. Ralph Waldo Emerson, a 19th century philosopher, poet, and essayist, started the Transcendentalism movement, which claimed that the importance of one's personal intuition in the attempt to experience the divine is greater than any religious doctrine.Incorrect- can't compare importance of personal intuition to just religious doctrine

E. The Transcendentalism movement, which claimed that the importance of one's personal intuition in the attempt to experience the divine is greater than that of any religious doctrine, was started by Ralph Waldo Emerson, a 19th century philosopher, poet, and essayist.Incorrect. Here the main point of the sentence is treated as a non-essential modifier. It is not just a passing mention.

Please give a kudos, if you found my explanation helpful. Cheers :)
