Herbert Haag

Herbert Haag (born 11 February 1915 in Singen am Hohentwiel, died 23 August 2001 in Lucerne) was a Swiss Roman Catholic theologian and biblical scholar of German origin.

After studying theology in Paris for the diocese of Basel in 1940, he was ordained a priest and worked for several years as a pastor in Lucerne. In 1942 Haag attained his PhD at the University of Fribourg. From 1948 to 1960 he taught Old Testament studies at the Theological Faculty of Lucerne, and from 1960 to 1980 he held the chair of Old Testament at the Catholic Theological Faculty at the University of Tübingen. Haag in particular as biblical scholars and exegete known, among other things, he published a well-known Bible dictionary. In his 1969 book on ''Farewell to the devil : from the Christian dealing with evil'', he is noted for being the first Catholic theologian in the modern era to deny the existence of the devil, and to deny it as constitutive of the Christian faith, claiming it to be merely linked to a cultural frame inherited from both Judaism and paganism, a position which was criticized by then Cardinal Ratzinger. He also criticized dogmas of the church doctrine, such as original sin, apostolic succession, homosexuality, celibacy of the clergy and the ban on the ordination of women. In his last years he emerged as a critic of the institutional church.

In 1981, he signed an open letter to Swiss newspapers contending that a wrong had been done to Hans Küng in 1979, when a Vatican decree stripped the church's recognition of Küng as a Catholic theologian due to his denial of papal infallibility. In 1985, he established the Herbert Haag Foundation for "freedom in the Church", which awards the Herbert Haag Prize. Provided by Wikipedia
