Rudolf Karl Bultmann (1884-1976), influential German theologian, taught at the universities of Breslau and Giessen, and, from 1921 to 1950, was professor at the University of Marburg.

“The outstanding theologian of his age…a Lutheran preacher whose thinking was decisively shaped by the neo-Kantian and incipiently existentialist theology of his Marburg teacher W. Herrmann and enriched by his study of F. Schleiermacher, R. Otto, and E. Troeltsch. But in 1921 he was sufficiently impressed with the second edition of K. Barth’s Römerbrief to become associated with dialectical theology in its break with historicism and psychologism, its discovery of S. Kierkegaard, and its renewal of Luther’s kerygmatic theology.” - R. Morgan, Dictionary of Biblical Interpretation.

“Bultmann was a proponent of ‘form-criticism,’ an approach which attempted to discover historical roots of religious writings. Bultmann held that ‘the aim of form-criticism is to determine the original form of a piece of narrative, a dominical saying or a parable. In the process we learn to distinguish secondary additions and forms, and these in turn lead to important results for the history of the tradition.’” - Boston Collaborative Encyclopedia of Modern Western Theology.
