Karl Barth never visited Asia; yet through discussions with Asian students in Europe, correspondence with scholars in Asia, and visits by colleagues from that continent, he had a vast network of contacts as the Karl Barth Archives show. His earliest and most intensive contacts have been with Christians and others from Japan, such as the philosopher Katsumi Takizawa, with whom Barth maintained an intimate relationship through the years. In this article we describe and analyze these Asian contacts. Also, the author tries to evaluate upon which theological fields his work exerted influence in that continent and to indicate in which areas of thought he was influenced by Asians as well.
