Research Programme Practices

Title: Practices of Faith in Socio-cultural Networks

In the Practices of Faith in Socio-Cultural Networks program researchers from practical-theological disciplines and from the social sciences are working together. In a multi-disciplinary approach practices of faith are the subject of empirical-theological investigation in their cultural and social contexts. The focus is on new, usually complex and fragmented developments in practices of faith.
