The Karl Rahner Society was founded in 1991 by American scholars to promote:
study of Karl Rahner's writings;
publication of critical editions of his works in English;
reflection on his thought and on works which carry forward the spirit of Rahner's enterprise, especially in the fields of theology and philosophy;
collaboration with other scholarly groups concerned with his work.
In this way, the Society hopes to make a contribution to the ongoing reception and assessment of Karl Rahner in Church and society.

Please consult the Society's Constitution and Rules for Membership

For applications to join the Society and for questions about membership, please contact Dr. Heidi Russell
The KRS meets once a year in conjunction with the convention of The Catholic Theological Society of America.
Since 1991 the Society has sponsored many of the "Rahner Papers" in a special issue of Philosophy and Theology: Marquette University Journal.  For a list of previously-published papers, click here.  For information about how to submit an essay for publication, see the style sheet.
