Abstract

Paul Tillich (1886–1965) was one of the greatest Protestant theologians of the twentieth century, renowned both for his major three-volume Systematic Theology (Tillich 1968b [1957–63]) and for his popular works, such as The Courage To Be (Tillich 2000 [1952]) and Dynamics of Faith (Tillich 2001 [1957]). Heir to the mediating theological projects of Schleiermacher and Troeltsch, Tillich consistently sought to bring Christian theology into dialogue with the concerns of his times, engaging influentially with existentialist philosophy, modern art, the sciences and politics in the development of what he called a “theology of culture.”
