Think Tank 2021: Religious education in schools in the horizon of growing non-denominationalism


From 6 to 7 October 2021, a research workshop on the topic of "Religious Education in Schools in the Horizon of Growing Non-denominationalism" under the direction of Prof. Dr. Mirjam Schambeck sf (Freiburg) and Prof. Dr. Ulrich Kropač is planned in Eichstätt.

The conference of experts, conceived as a think tank, will focus on religious education and ethics education as subjects that are originally concerned with religion-related questions. The question arises as to how religious education in schools should be changed in the face of growing de-confessionalization and secularization in Germany.

This applies to the content and form of denominational religious instruction as well as to the concept of ethics instruction, which for an ever increasing number of pupils is becoming the only place where they can engage in an educational debate, including on religiously relevant issues.

The think tank is the kick-off event for the project of the same name, which is also based at the chair.
