Rudolf Karl Bultmann is born in Wiefelstede, Oldenburg, Germany. A theologian and scholar of New Testament, Bultmann will conclude based on his research that nothing can reliably known about the historicity of the gospel stories of Jesus.

As a result of this, and of his adoption existentialist ideas, Bultmann will argue that Christianity must be "demythologized." By this he means that non-historical, mythological additions must be abandoned so that Christianity can be reduced to some historical, genuine core.
