Intercultural theology / missiology

Profile of the Chair of Missiology at PThU

Missiology is theological reflection on Christian mission as boundary crossing between people of different cultural/ethnical, socio-economic backgounds and of different religious and non religious worldviews. The studies of World Christianity and Religious Studies are its closest allies, while PThU missiology is focusing on encounterological aspects.
