«Revelation is not a scientific concept». Some remarks on the correspond- ence between Adolf von Harnack and Karl Barth



In the 1923 debate between Barth and Harnack on dialectical theology, the 1524-1525 dispute between Erasmus and Luther over God’s predestining grace and human free will seems to be repeated in a different context. But on closer inspection, the question between Barth and Harnack concerns university theology, i.e. under what conditions it can be an academic discipline.
