Karl Barth (May 10, 1886 - 1968). Swiss theologian.

Born in Basel, he spent his childhood years in Bern. From 1911 to 1921 he served as pastor in the village of Safenwil in the canton Argovia. Later he was professor of theology in Germany. He had to leave Germany in 1935 after he refused to swear allegiance to Adolf Hitler. Barth went back to Switzerland and became professor in Basel.

Quote "Jesus does not give recipes that show the way to God as other teachers of religion do. He is himself the way."
