Description: Two-dimensional dilaton gravity is in so far a rather special field theory, as after a gauge fixing only a finite-dimensional solution space remains. This fact was used in this paper for the quantisation of the theory. It allowed us to use as Wheeler-DeWitt equation a PDE instead of a functional equation. With a WKB approximation we showed that our equation yields the correct classical limit.
