A New Documentary Film Based on the book by Robert P. Ericksen

A Special Viewing of this New Film
Followed by a Panel Discussion

Emanuel Hirsch, Gerhard Kittel and Paul Althaus were three of the most prominent Christian scholars in twentieth century Germany. They were also outspoken supporters of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party. How did this happen? What relationship exists between their political choices and their scholarship? This provocative film asks questions that are of importance for every community of theological education.
