Luther, Rosenzweig, and the Script

Book Presentation and Discussion in the Context of the Reformation Anniversary 2017 (video recording available, in German)

The editor Micha Brumlik and the contributors Walter Homolka, Christoph Kasten, Irmela von der Lühe, and Gesine Palmer discussed the relationship between Rosenzweig and Luther from different perspectives.

Franz Rosenzweig and Martin Buber embarked upon a new translation of the Hebrew Bible into German together in 1924. Rosenzweig himself had considered converting to Protestant Christianity in earlier years.
In 1926, the philosopher of religion wrote the essay The Scriptures and Luther, which is being discussed in Brumlik’s book.
