GB 231 MS 3409 This small collection of David Cairns' unpublished manuscripts and letters offers a valuable insight into twentieth century Scottish theology, and will provide a useful source for future research work in this area. Items of particular interest, identified by Cairns before his death, include a record of a conversation held between Karl Barth, David H. Cairns, and his father, David S. Cairns, which helped Cairns to dispel the slur a year or two ago, one person was inputting to our Church in being pro-Nazi in the '30s; examples of sermons which he preached during the period 1948 - 1968; and a copy of his inaugural lecture at Christ's College in 1948. There are, additionally, theological reviews and summaries of Cairns' and others' work, including R.R. Niebuhr, H.D. Lewis, Heinrich Ott, James Ayre, A. Thomson, Karl Heim, Lesslie Newbigin, Walther Kunneth and J.C. Von Hoffmann.
