About the Author
Dr. Martin Dibelius (1883-1947) was responsible for the term Formgeschichte and was both the pioneer and the best exponent of the method. His earliest theological studies were directed mainly towards the Semitic languages, and he took a doctorate in Semitic Philology at Tubingen. From 1915 until his death, he held the Chair of New Testament Exegesis and Criticism in Heidelberg.
