Catechetics, Religious Education, and Pedagogy

Institute of Catechetics, Religious Education, and Pedagogy

Religious education is a theological theory of religious learning and educational processes in close interdisciplinary dialogue with the social sciences. Both catechetics, as an extracurricular possibility of access to faith, and subject didactics, which helps to develop one’s capacity to reflect on planning, implementation, and evaluation of religious educational processes, are associated with religious studies.

The key questions for the institute are: What personal and structural conditions are necessary for a successful and liberating communication of faith? How can vivid processes of communication in the context of religious instruction and adult education be initiated? How can daily inter-subjective encounters at school and the parish be interpreted theologically?
