Whereas a preceding article focused on  Heim’s understanding  of “space”, this article focuses on “time”. It is believed that Heim made an enormous contribution to the debate between  theology and natural sciences  and that time and space form the fabric of understanding reality. The author interprets Heim’s concept of time as a trajectory of time which means that a network of linear, cyclical and punctual time is envisaged. Tribute is paid to Moltmann who was a later successor of Heim in Tübingen, and has applied and developed these insights of time in theology.
