The society goes back to an initially loose union of Paul Tillich's friends (founded in 1956), which in 1960 legally organized "Circle of Paul Tillich's Friends e.V.". In 1969, the "circle" was renamed "Paul Tillich Society e.V.", and in 1980, - after Tillich companies had been established in North America and in the French-speaking world as well - in "German Paul Tillich Society e.V."
