Innsbruck and the Jesuitenkirche

Appropriately, the Jesuitenkirche is on Karl Rahner Platz. Karl Rahner, was one of the most influential Jesuit Theologians of the XX century, and leaving his mark on the Catholic Church, especially after Pope John XXIII appointed him peritus at the Second Vatican Council. Karl Rahner was professor here at the University in Innsbruck, during the 1930s, until the Nazis took control.
Karl Rahner Platz, site of the Jesuitenkirche,
Karl Rahner's dissertation Geist in Welt, shows how well he relates Thomas Aquinas concept of philosophy with Emmanuel Kant and especially with the Existentialism of Martin Heidegger.
