Semester 2 unit | Reading Ethics with Bonhoeffer

In this unit students will engage – 75 years after his execution by the Nazis –  with Dietrich Bonhoeffer, described as ‘the one German theologian who will lead us into the third millennium’, through a structured, facilitated reading of one of his last major publications. Students will locate Bonhoeffer in his historical, theological and political context, providing the necessary background for understanding his thought. Students will also encounter key themes and terms that emerge in Ethics, through which Bonhoeffer’s fragmentary prison writings can be better appreciated.

Originally planned as a face-to-face class only, this unit will now also be offered as a synchronous online unit.
