The science of theology

“What decides whether theology is possible as a science is not whether theologians read sources, observe historical facts as such, and uncover the nature of historical relationships, but whether they can think dogmatically.”

—Karl Barth, praising Schleiermacher in Protestant Theology in the Nineteenth Century (Valley Forge: Judson Press, 1973), p. 431.
