No Other Word of God: Confessing Barmen 90 Years Later

The Center for Barth Studies at Princeton Theological Seminary is hosting an event on May 10th, 2024 to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Barmen Declaration. Among the featured speakers is Victoria Barnett, the general editor of the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works in English (2004-2014).

From the event website:

“The Barmen Declaration, written primarily by Karl Barth in 1934, was the manifesto of the Confessing Church during the Nazi period in Germany.  Designed to prevent the capitulation of the  churches to hostile cultural forces, it has been accorded authoritative status throughout the Protestant world for its emphasis on the centrality and all-sufficiency of Christ.

This event one-day hybrid celebrates the 90th anniversary of the Barmen Declaration. Notable historians and theologians will give papers and reflections on the declaration, both for its historical significance and its meaning and relevance for  today. The event will also include a closing discussion panel.”

Speakers include Victoria Barnett, John Burgess, Eberhard Busch, Raymond Carr, Karlfied Froelich, Stanley Hauerwas, George Hunsinger, and Katherine Sonderegger. Kara Slade will moderate.

The steering committee for this event includes Kaitlyn Dugan, Director of the Center for Barth Studies, and George Hunsinger, Professor of Systematic Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary.

Registration is free.
