Welcome to the Department of Protestant Theology:  

200 Years of Excellence


The Department of Protestant Theology was founded in 1818 as one of the five original departments belonging to the University of Bonn. 200 years later the department is an exemplar of the educational ideals of Wilhelm von Humboldt: that the intertwining of research and teaching is central and life-giving to scholarship.

The blending of dedicated teaching, fearless research, ecumenical collaboration, and, of course the joie de vivre of the Rhineland, makes the Bonn Protestant Theology Department what it is: an exceptional and inviting bastion of theological scholarship.
