Karl Barth und der Anglikanismus: Die anglikanische Rezeption und Wirkungsgeschichte Barths von 1986 bis zur Gegenwart

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study examines the most recent phase of the reception of Karl Barth’s theology by British Anglican and American Episcopalian theologians, beginning with the renaissance of Barth studies in the 1980s and continuing to the present day. The article examines how aspects of Barth’s thought have been taken up as a resource for creative theological thinking on the part of Anglican theologians or have provided the foil against which new theological approaches have been developed. Among the theologians discussed are Trevor Hart, John Webster, Ian Markham, John Milbank, Graham Ward, Timothy Gorringe, Rowan Williams, Kathryn Tanner, and Katherine Sonderegger. The essay concludes with an outline of the major trends in the Anglican reception of Barth and what lessons can be learned from Barth for the construction of a coherent, relevant, and distinctive Anglican theology.
