Here is a proposed schedule of readings. This being a seminar, we will consider ourselves free to deviate from this timetable if it seems advisable. Students are to complete all seven sections of the Pauck biography, reading at the pace of one section per week. We will read short selections from The Essential Tillich from time to time, as they complement the readings from ST or deal with questions that arise in class discussion. We will also each read one biographical biographical work (provided by instructor) and report on that work to the class.
