About Nils Alstrup Dahl

Nils Alstrup Dahl's work spans large parts of the 20th century and the most important theological environments in Europe and North America. He combined theology with a strong interest in society, he inspired priests as well as historians of religion. He was always concerned with central theological topics about God, Jesus and the church, but asked radical questions and was open to using a variety of methods.

Normally, the Dahl lectures are subsequently published in the journal of Studia Theologica.
