Abstract

Given the obscurity which envelops the question of intellectual influences on Karl Barth's Epistle to the Romans, it is the purpose of this work to examine the thesis provided by Bruce McCormack and to consider the themes and concepts of Romans II in order to account to what extent Barth employed Kierkegaard's own thought within this primary work.
