Hans Kun (HANSKüng) is one of the most famous theologians advocating Catholic reform, he died on Tuesday in the southwestern German city of Tübingen (Tübingen) at the age of 93.
Nadja Dornis, a spokesperson for the Tübingen Global Ethics Foundation, confirmed Kunge’s death.
She said that Kunge died of sleep.
Foundation Chairman Eberhard Stilz said: “With Hans Küng, we have lost the charm and humanity of the foundation’s impressive founders and wealthy A visionary organizer to build a fairer and more peaceful world.”
He added: “For me, it has always been and has been an honor for me to continue working at the foundation.”
Due to opposition to the Pope’s doctrine of inerrancy, Küng lost his license to teach Catholic theology during the reign of Pope John Paul II in 1979.
Since then, the Tübingen theology professor has repeatedly criticized the pope, once he compared the church to a dictatorship.
He demanded the abolition of the celibacy of the priesthood, the appointment of women and the strengthening of the role of laymen, which is why he has an influence among free Catholics.
In his books and lectures, he promoted dialogue among world religions.
In recent years, due to deteriorating health conditions, Kunge has withdrawn from the public eye.
Among other things, he suffered from Parkinson’s disease, which was revealed to the public in his autobiography.
He was born on March 19, 1928 in Sursee, Switzerland.
