  1. To start an archive of Dr Detering’s websites, I visited some pages of hermann-detering.de and radikalkritik.de from the Internet Archive Wayback Machine:
    Maybe others can continue with pages that have not yet been archived there.

    In addition, I downloaded the file trees of hermann-detering.de and radikalkritik.de with ‘wget’, and uploaded them as ZIP archives to Google Drive. ZIP files with ‘…_W.zip’ in the name contain files with MS Windows compatible file names (wget parameter “–restrict-file-names=windows”).

    I hope this helps a bit to uphold Dr Detering’s legacy.


    1. Thanks. I must check to see if and how much of Hermann Detering’s site has been captured in archive.org

      It might be better to at least initially work with Rene Salm and his site since I think he has a much bigger head start on preserving HD’s pages and articles.

  2. I had not seen notice of Hermann Detering’s death. I think that I heard from him by email a good few years ago, probably about Tertullian. I only became aware of his curious ideas later than that. Did he remain a salaried Lutheran clergyman to the last, do you know?

    1. Detering was controversial, but he was not removed from the office as he was able to separate his community work from his research. He retired, however, prematurely for his then already damaged health.
