Institute of Fundamental Theology and Dogmatic Theology

Life orientation and processes of meaning-making seem to be in urgent demand because of the growing complexity of our pluralistic and multicultural society. This requires a sound understanding of the traditions of faith in particular as well as an intellectual appropriation of their teachings. The task of fundamental and dogmatic theology in this regard is to hermeneutically engage the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith in order to account for their plausibility and relevance. In continuity with the Second Vatican Council the KU Linz is particularly concerned with grasping the social and existential relevance of faith and to give a voice to its commemorative and liberating, but also critical potential. Even though the disciplines of fundamental theology and dogmatic theology are researched in separate departments both subjects are seen to share important methodological and textual aspects.
