The Center for Barth Studies was established at Princeton Theological Seminary in
1997. Administered by a board of seminary faculty, the Center sponsors conferences,
research opportunities, discussion groups, and publications.
Barth Research Collection, part of Special Collections in the Princeton
Theological Seminary Library, supports the scholarly activities of the Center for Barth
Studies. The Karl Barth Research Collection is acquiring an exhaustive collection of
writings by and about Karl Barth. Although many volumes are still needed, the Research
Collection has already acquired Barth's most important works in German and English,
several first editions, and an original hand-written manuscript by Karl Barth. The
Research Collection welcomes contributions from scholars to its holdings.
reading room of the Karl Barth Research Collection is open by arrangement to scholars,
students, pastors, and laypersons. Please make advance arrangements with the curator.
