Ecclesiology and ethnography with humility : going through Barth.

Ward, Pete (2018) 'Ecclesiology and ethnography with humility : going through Barth.', Studia theologica., 72 (1). pp. 51-67.


Drawing on the notion that future Ecclesiologies would be wise to go through Karl Barth rather than to attempt to go around him. This article proposes a cautious humility for ethnographic approaches to ecclesiology. The article builds on the move towards ethnographic forms of ecclesiology in a Scandinavian context. From this starting point it argues that Barth’s ecclesiology suggests a series of theological checks and balances in ecclesiology and ethnography. These are explored through the notion of humility in method and approach.
