Bonhoeffer on the Ontological Structure of the Church


Location: McKenna Hall

Christiane Tietz, Johannes Gutenberg Universität Mainz

The theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906–45) has long been at the center of important discussions on pastoral theology, practical ethics, political responsibility, and the role of the Christian in the modern world. Recently, scholars have sought to relate these emphases more thoroughly to Bonhoeffer’s systematic and philosophical thought, as well as to his theological and historical context. This conference gathers senior scholars and graduate students from North America and Europe to reflect on and further this turn in Bonhoeffer studies.

This is one of the open-to-the-public keynote addresses for the conference New Conversations on Bonhoeffer’s Theology.
