DR352J: THEOLOGY AGAINST THE NAZIS: THE WRITINGS OF DIETRICH BONHOEFFER (2017-2018)

Last modified: 14 Sep 2017 10:22


Course Overview

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) is one of the most prominent voices in modern theology. From the 1960s to the present his work has been at the centre of a number of important theological developments and debates. Moreover, his dramatic involvement in the resistance against Hitler, and consequent execution, has resulted in a widespread interest in his work outside of the academy.  Today, he is among the most widely read theologians in Europe, North America and beyond. This course will focus on Bonhoeffer’s major theological writings.
