Just read on James McGrath's blog that C. K. ("Kingsley") Barrett has passed. What a nice man. A scholar and a gentleman. His article in Bultmann's 1955 Festschrift, if I remember correctly, was instrumental in some of my earliest forays into Hebrews, in which he argued that Hebrews has both an apocalyptic and a Platonic dimension.
I met Barrett once in Durham and told him that. His mild mannered response was something like, "I don't much remember what I wrote in it. Might not even agree with it any more."
He was a Methodist who preached in the countryside from time to time. I remember someone saying that he had become a bit of a question mark to some of the formerly coal mining congregations in Durham County. He of course didn't bring any critical considerations into his preaching, so they had difficulty, I inferred, reconciling his scholarly writings with his preaching. Of course it makes perfect sense to me. ;-)
I've often envied what I took to be his life. I've sometimes wondered if I've stretched myself so thin that I will die at a relatively young age. He always seemed so calm and to have such a leisurely scholarly life of ease at Durham (although I heard once that he and Cranfield were fierce competitors there). He lived to be 94.
