A New Era of Bonhoeffer Interpretation (video)

Posted on May 4, 2015 by PLT Staff

Lecture given by Victoria Barnett at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. Barnett argues that academia is entering a new era of interpretation of the works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. She argues that this is in part due to the complete interpretation of Bonhoeffer’s work into English as well the introduction of new perspectives by young, new scholars in the field. Barnett goes on to discuss some barriers to understanding and interpreting Bonhoeffer, including the vast quantity of his writings. For a listing of all our Occasional Lectures, click here.

Excerpt: “There’s so much here. Everybody has retold the story so many times there’s a danger of people being stuck in a certain historiographical groove and not really being able to see that there are other perspectives.”
