Goethe's Home Town Honors Tillich Nov. 5
The City of Frankfort, Germany, has awarded its annual Goethe Plaquette to University Professor Paul J. Tillich. The West German ambassador will present the honor on Nov. 5, in Washington.
Before coming to the United States in 1933, Tillich taught at the University in Frankfort, home of the 19th century poet Wolfgang von Goethe. Since 1954 Tillich has been on the faculty of the Harvard Divinity School.
Tillich will not learn the reason for the award until its presentation.
