By Alf Christophersen
Gestützt auf reiches, weithin unbekanntes Archivmaterial untersucht Alf Christophersen die Rollenspiele charismatischer Begriffskämpfer auf den Bühnen politisch-ethischer Konflikte in der Weimarer Republik und richtet dabei sein Augenmerk vorrangig auf einflußreiche protestantische Theologen der Zeit. Tradierte Deutungsmuster der neueren Theologiegeschichte werden kritisch revidiert: In hermeneutisch subtiler Relektüre von Schlüsseltexten vielfach vergessener 'Augenblicks'-Diskurse und präzisen, ideenhistorisch wie literarisch-begriffsgeschichtlich orientierten Konstellationsanalysen gewinnt das Profil von Akteuren wie E. Troeltsch, ok. Barth, F. Gogarten, E. Hirsch, R. Bultmann, M. Heidegger, St. George und insbesondere P. Tillich schärfere, zum Teil überraschend neue Konturen.
