010126 VO Basic Course Fundamental Theology II (Text and Tradition) (2019W)

3.00 ECTS (2.00 SWS), SPL 1 - Katholische Theologie

Die Vorlesung behandelt den Themenbereich von Schrift als einer entscheidenden Form der Selbstkonstitution von Glaubensgemeinschaften, nimmt einen theologischen Standpunkt ein und hat dabei im Zentrum die biblischen Glaubensgemeinschaften jüdischer und christlicher Tradition. Daher ergibt sich auch die Frage nach der Bedeutung von Traditionen von selbst, ebenso die Frage nach deren Wirkungen und Wirksamkeiten, die sich mitunter deutlich über den eigenen Bereich hinaus erstrecken.
