Paul Tillich: Theology and Legacy

Paul Tillich features on anyone’s list of most significant and influential 20th Century theologians. In an age where it is tempting to retreat into intra-theological discussion or dismiss the secular world, Tillich’s vision for a theology which engages with culture and connects religious language with philosophical reflection continues to influence and provoke contemporary theological reflection.

This conference aimed to stimulate and provide a platform for current work on Paul Tillich in anticipation of the commencement of the publication of the Collected Works in English from 2015, as well as provide space and time for scholars with an interest in Tillich’s work to meet, get to know each other, and discuss their work. It featured the following keynote speakers:

  • Reinhold Bernhardt (Basel)
  • Marc Boss (Montpellier)
  • Douglas Hedley (Cambridge)
  • Anne-Marie Reijnen (Paris)
  • Christoph Schwöbel (Tübingen)
