Two new volumes of Barth's Gesamtausgabe have just been added to The Digital Karl Barth Library. The online collection now includes volumes 1 through 45 of Gesamtausgabe, in addition to The Church Dogmatics in its entirety, and Die kirchliche Dogmatik and its English translation.
The new material includes Predigten 1921 (GA I.44), 31 sermons by Karl Barth that provide not only a window into his theology as given through the spoken word, but also something of Barth himself. This collection also contains a Biblical index, and index of terms, as well as a list of names.
Also included is Karl Barth-Charlotte Von Kirschbaum Band 1 1925-1935 (GA 5.44), the first volume of correspondence between Karl Barth and Charlotte Von Kirschbaum. Von Kirschbaum and Barth shared a unique relationship: she was his pupil, secretary, companion and theologian in her own right. Along with living with Barth and his wife Nelly for over 30 years, Barth and Charlotte would often vacation together, leaving Nelly home to care for the home and the children. Containing over 130 letters and spanning the time from 1925 to 1935, this collection will be of interest to theologians and historians alike.
