Department of "Religious Education, Adult Faith Formation and Homiletics" of the Faculty of Catholic Theology at the University of Bonn

Header Englisch Seite

Prof. Dr. Bert Roebben is holding the Chair of Religious Education (RE) in the Faculty of Catholic Theology and is coordinating the research of the Department of Religious Education, Adult Faith Formation and Homiletics.

The post-secular context in which this research is conducted is characterized by a deep plurality in society on the one hand and the transformation of religious traditions on the other hand. The implications for RE in schools and for catechesis in churches are being developed in research projects on interreligious learning, children’s and youth theology, inclusion and heterogeneity, and media literacy. Fundamental discourses on theological relevance, didactical conceptualization and teacher’s professionality/spirituality are permanently accompanying the research and teaching of the department.
