The Development of Karl Barth's Theology
In this seminar course students will read and discuss twenty lectures by Karl Barth which explore twenty loci. These lectures were given in 1938, about the mid-point in Barth’s working years. The instructor will endeavor to indicate how Barth’s presentation of these lectures often modify his (and others) earlier positions and how they were in turn modified by Barth in his later writings. The intention is to present a survey of Barth’s particular emphases including a description of their development. Attention will also be given to how Barth challenges various historical and contemporary theologies.
