Welcome to the Department of Practical Theology

Practical Theology concerns itself with church and Christian practice in addition to the perceptions thereof within the larger society. It does so by teaching the perceptions of practice, the search for the understanding of theory, and the practice of exemplary design/formation.


Prof. Dr. Eberhard Hauschildt’s work is comprised of the teaching of homiletics, pastoral care, social welfare work, church building, and church leadership.  His research focuses are in the areas of everyday pastoral care and theology, millieus in the church, and practical theology hermeneutics.  

The area concentration in Religious Education is currently led by PD Dr. Daniel Bauer.

The field of Intercultural Theology includes research on questions and topics relating to the intersections of religion, culture, politics and global society. It can engage these topics within the paradigms of ecumenical, interreligious or religious studies research. The area concentration in Intercultural Theology is being developed by Dr. Matthew Ryan Robinson in work on the Bonn Global Network for Excellence in Theology (G_NET)
