Political religious education

Religion is always political: to see religion in an individualistically reduced way runs the risk of overlooking essential aspects, functions and effects of religion(s). The Institute's staff set a 'resistant' focus here in order to illuminate the political dimensions of religion and also to make them fruitful for emancipatory religious education processes. Religion is a resource that can bring questions of (in)justice, marginalisation, fragility and vulnerability into religious education processes and into processes of developing school culture.
