4.07.161 Public theology in Europe


Veranstaltungstermin

  • Donnerstag: 14:00 - 16:00, wöchentlich

Beschreibung

Public theology is an emerging field within Christian theology. Drawing on work in related areas such as political theology, liberation theology, and social ethics, this new approach engages with a range of issues in the public sphere and, thus, seeks to contribute to debates of public relevance from a theological perspective. In the seminar, we will explore the field of public theology - its methodology as well as its application in specific cases (e.g. regarding the tension between freedom of expression and respect for faith) - and, in doing so, examine the public role of theology in contemporary Europe.
