Aus dem Schwedischen übersetzt von Dietz Lange
1. Edition 2011
Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht
Söderblom’s thoughts concerning religious pluralism and ecumenism are today falling on fertile soil. Dietz Lange’s collection and translation of a number of texts has also served this purpose.
Nathan Söderblom (1866–1931) was an important religious scholar, theologian, Archbishop of the Swedish Church and one of the Founding Fathers of the Ecumenical movement, in particularly at the Stockholm Conference of 1925. In his day age and since he has proved to be an important influence both in Sweden and elsewhere.
Today, under very different intellectual and social circumstances, his farsighted views on the problems of religious pluralism and ecumenism have come to fruition. Lange’s choice of texts guarantees the proper representation of the main thrust of Söderblom’s literary production.
