Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

NOTE: The course will be given in English. Welcome to the exchange students, but also to the Austrian students who intend to improve their English. We plan a get-together with the exchange students before the course starts.

The course will focus on three priority areas:
(a) Freedom of thought, of concience, of religion, of ideologies, individual and collective: these human rights will be considered within the framework of the history and present meaning of European and universal fundamental rights; please, keep in mind, they were forerunners of political pluralism.
(b) Religion in the public space: religions and religious communities in the European societies and states; separation and cooperation with the state authorities; recognition procedures;
(c) Organisational principles and structures of churches and religious communities in Europe; in particular, the Protestant Churches.

Austria will be a prominent example; it will be discussed as part of the Western democracies.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written examination, 20 minutes; three questions will have to be treated, of which at least two must be answered satisfactorily. Open textbook examination.

Active participation in the discussions will enter the final assessment.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The course is a basic course in character; it aims at preparing the particpants in fundamentals and at continuing in the seminar in law and theology, as prescribed by the curriculum for regualr students in theology.

Examination topics
