Welcome to the website of the Professorship for Protestant Theology with special emphasis on social ethics and the history of theology!

Protestant theology offers courses as part of the ISA course as well as part of the historical science. The courses content the introduction to ethics, the ethics of technology / AI, of economics, of the environment, of medicine, the ethics of Islam and intercultural and interreligious ethics. The offers are interdisciplinary and combine basic theoretical knowledge with application-related practical examples. No specific religious or ideological beliefs are assumed. The aim is to show how and why ethical questions are discussed in socially relevant topics and what solutions they come up with.

In addition to conveying different perspectives on the respective topics, exchange and discussion are an important part of the courses. These are essential for forming one’s own opinion.
