Tillich, Paul
(1886–1965)
German Lutheran theologian. Tillich fled to the USA in 1933, and taught theology at the Union Theological Seminary, Harvard, and Chicago. His Systematic Theology in three volumes (1951– 63) attempts a ‘method of correlation’ whereby Christian revelation answers contemporary cultural questions. It is existentialist in tone, but infused with Jungian psychology and neo-scholastic metaphysics.
