Systematic Theology and Hermeneutics

The subdepartment is led by Prof. Dr Cornelia Richter, Professor of Systematic Theology in Bonn since 2012.
Talking about God? Creation and climate change? What is the human being? Sin, guilt and reconcilitation? Rethinking church? Talking about death and ressurection? Dogmatics is thinking about the core sentences of Christian faith, understanding their "life story" and situational polyvalence. Important are ideas and concepts, premises and conclusions, theories and courses of action: These can be understood, methodically correct, through Hermeneutics and Philosophy of Religion. In art, music and examples from the pastoral praxis, the theories are shown clearly.
