Karl Barth as Historian: Historical Method in the Göttingen Lectures on Calvin, Zwingli and Schleiermacher

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the field of Barth studies, much of the most important recent work has focused on Barth's development and his reception of Reformed theology during the Göttingen years. But although in Göttingen Barth was occupied primarily with lecturing on theological history, his distinctive approach to historical study has so far received relatively little attention. This article draws attention to what Barth himself says about historical method in his three most important historical lecture cycles from the Göttingen years: the lectures on Calvin, Zwingli and Schleiermacher.
