Faculty of Religion and Theology

Faculty of Religion and Theology

The Faculty of Religion and Theology (FRT) is the knowledge center for religion in society. Because religion matters in people's lives and in societal challenges such as climate change and conflict.


That is why our scientists from different academic disciplines and religious backgrounds research the sources, history, beliefs and contemporary practices of religious traditions.

FRT is a workplace where academics and students of different religious beliefs come together. From Buddhists to Christians and from Muslims to atheists: we enter into a conversation with each other. Differences and controversies are not avoided but taken seriously in dialogue and debate. This is how we train future leaders: for religious communities, education, care and NGOs.
