Analysis of the Barmen Declaration

/ 19 March 2013

As one of two somewhat small written assignments for my Theologies of Violence and Nonviolence course we were to write a theological analysis on the Barmen Declaration. The version of the declaration we had a photocopy of to use for this assignment came from Appendix V of The Church’s Confession Under Hitler. The book we’ve used while going through the Holocaust unit of this course, Betrayal: German Churches and the Holocaust, was our only other source for this assignment. Feel free to comment on this analysis here, or even if desired comment with your own views on this document if you’ve seen it yourself.
