Chapter Summary

This chapter concentrates on how Walter Grundmann uses exegesis in dealing with the Jews, a field that has received less attention than the work at the Institute for the Study and Eradication of Jewish Influence on German Church Life. The discussion of the chapter pertains only to Grundmann during National Socialism. Since his entire bibliography is very large, especially with numerous pamphlets published during National Socialism, the chapter concentrates on his most important exegetical works of the period. It also discusses some texts that point to his theological foundation and his development during National Socialism. The author says that Grundmanns symbolic world is increasingly racialised. The ultimate factor in his symbolic world is of course Jesus, Grundmann wanting to make possible the aryanisation of the centre of Christianity.

Keywords: Christianity; German Church; Jews; National Socialism; Walter Grundmann
