Friedrich Wilhelm Graf (University of Munich) „Theology and its Relationship with Religious Studies: boundaries, assimilations, incursions."
Although it is largely acknowledged by most academics that there is a clear distinction between theology and religious studies, the relationship between these two disciplines is a complex one. While theology is commonly thinking about religion from an internal perspective, religious studies seeks to study the cultural effects of belief and religious behaviour from outside. Starting with a brief overview about the history and origins of religious studies, the principal aim of this lecture is a systematic reflection on contemporary questions in what different ways our knowledge in relation to religion can be shaped.
