When your doing dissertation research...

you learn all sorts of interesting tidbits. This quote, for instance, from Carl Braaten's Justification: The Article by Which the Church Stands or Falls is interesting:

[Reformed theologian Karl] Barth symbolized his decisive rejection of [various] Lutheran principles by curtaining off the whole Weimar edition of Luther’s works in his study, since Luther’s writings—“that Pandora’s box”—appeared to him as a source of all evils against which he had to contend [p. 65]
