|Bishop Giertz was one of the most important Lutheran theologians in the 20th century. In this intensive course we will study his life and his personal theological development. We will analyze his theology through his writings (especially the books translated into English and, in some cases, German) from a contextual perspective, studying how they are connected with his personal development and also the development of the modern liberal Swedish society.
Additional information: This course is a regular S.T.M. level course with S.T.M. students. However, we also welcome those who wish to participate in it as a Continuing Education course with a lighter requirement. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to learn this important churchman, Bishop Bo Giertz, through an accomplished historian from his home land! (3 CEU)
