Is Patrick Süskind a mythicist?

Post by Giuseppe »

Who is Patrick Süskind.

In his little essay Über Liebe und Tod (On Love and Death) (essay, 2006), he writes about Jesus, having just pointed out the cold traits of the his Gospel portrait:

A lapidary sentence that makes me wonder if the author is a mythicist.
