Luedemann and Academic Freedom
No doubt many people have the information about Luedmann's appeal...
The German Federal Constitutional Court has rejected Gerd Luedemann's appeal against the exclusion of him teaching in the Theology Faculty at the University of Goettingen.
Luedemann points out that this ruling makes genuinely critical work in German theological faculties impossible.
Further details are found on James Tabor's blog and Tom Verenna's blog.
What can I say? The structure of academic biblical studies is seriously problematic as I've argued plenty of times. Can anyone give me a good reason why questions surrounding belief or non-belief, or if you like any answer to the question of the historicity of the resurrection, should be off limits in a university setting?
