|Occupation||Pastor, academic, theologian, philosopher|
Lytta Basset (born 25 April 1950 at Raiatea in French Polynesia) is a Swiss philosopher and Protestant theologian. After serving as pastor in the Reformed Church at Geneva, she became a professor of Practical Theology in the Faculty of Theology of the University of Neuchâtel. She is the author of several works that have reached a wide audience, especially her 2002 book Sainte Colère, released in 2007 in English translation as Holy Anger. In this book, through the biblical figures of Jacob, Job and Jesus, she develops the thesis that it is through anger, and not through its suppression, that one develops an adult, personal faith.
Lytta Basset edits the University of Neuchâtel's international theology journal, La chair et le souffle. She is also a political activist, associated with a number of movements in favour of sustainable development and against violence.
Most of Basset's books are currently available only in French.
