Luise Schottroff Passes Away at 80

March 22, 2015

New Testament professor, author, social justice advocate, and feminist Luise Schottroff died on February 8 of this year.

“Schottroff’s work in New Testament Studies was truly groundbreaking. She responded to the challenges of a post-Shoah theology through her thorough critique of Christian anti-Jewish readings of the Scriptures. In addition, her feminist interpretations and socio-historical exegesis of the New Testament provided a new hermeneutical paradigm for understanding the Pauline letters and the parables.”

Read a short obituary by Professor Dr. Andrea Bieler of The College of Theology in Wuppertal/Bethel, Germany.

Much of the information available on the internet about Schottroff is in German.  If you are forgiving of the translation technology you can read the Google German to English translation of her Wikipedia entry by clicking here.
