Summary/Abstract: Considering the fact that Rudolf Bultmann was a priest and theologian who was also interested in questions of contemporary philosophy, the author is aiming to inquire are Bultman’s reflections about the problem of history are closer to Christian or contemporary conceptions. The author considers that we could answer that question by analyzing the concept of the eschaton which is the central concept of a Christian understanding of history. The results of this examination should demonstrate that Bultman’s understanding of the concept of the eschaton is different from traditional Christian concepts. In that manner, Bultman’s conceptions contribute to the fact that some Christian ideas continue to live through the prism of existentialist philosophy.
