: MYTH AND FAITH

What is Demythologising?
A translation of a talk by Rudolf Bultmann
Read by the Rev. E. H. Robertson
A new word has entered into New Testament criticism since Bultmann began his exegests: Entmythologisierung, beet translated demythologising.' Bultmann claims that there are many passages in the Bible, especially those about God and his dealings with man, that have the form of mythological expressions; and if they are to be intelligible in the twentieth century they must be interpreted. Such interpretation does not eliminate the passages but gives them meaning for today. In this talk he explains what the process is.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
