Religious education in schools in the horizon of growing non-denominationalism.
With a view to the current religious situation it becomes clear that non-denominationalism has gone from being an exception to the norm. Against this background, religious education faces the following challenges:
Many pupils are de jure non-denominational and take part in ethics lessons (without religious education).
Many baptized pupils are de facto non-denominational but take part in religious education.
A considerable number of non-denominational pupils take part in denominationally oriented religious education - not (no longer) only in East Germany.
The research project will therefore focus on the following questions:
What does this mean for...
... religious education processes in denominational religious instruction?
... possible forms of organization of religious education?
... the significance of ethics education and its relationship to religious education?

October 2021: Think Tank
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.
