: The God Above God

by Paul Tillich
University Professor at Harvard University
If we say God is a person,' we say something which is profoundly wrong.
According to the distinguished German-American theologian Paul Tillich, 'the God above God' is the God of the atheist as well as of the religious believer. In this talk he explains what it is that we are to understand by this apparently enigmatic phrase.


Speaker: Paul Tillich

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
