The complex philosophical theology of Paul Tillich (1886-1965), increasingly studied today, was influenced by thinkers as diverse as Augustine, Luther, Schelling and Heidegger. A Lutheran pastor who served as a military chaplain in the First World War, he was dismissed from his university post at Frankfurt when the Nazis came to power in 1933 and emigrated to the United States, where he continued his distinguished career.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'[This] addition to the Cambridge Companion series provides a broad, insightful introduction to the theology of Paul Tillich … It is well orchestrated by the editor; its articles do a particularly good job at representing the complex and wide-ranging nature of Tillich's scholarship. One can manage the material handily, quickly using it to create inroads for further research related to any number of topics.' The Heythrop Journal
