Research Seminar Historical Research in Theology and Religious Studies

0,25 EC 21 Sep 2018


This Research Seminar is inactive during the academic year 2018-2019 and will be inactive in the academic year 2019-2020 as well. The main reason is that the number of ReMA students and PhD candidates that have shown interest in participating in this Research Seminar is too low. ReMA students and PhD candidates doing historical research are recommended to consider participating in the Research Seminar Dogmatics, Ethics and Philosophy of Religion, the Research Seminar Religious Studies or any other Research Seminar they deem relevant to their research. In the meanwhile, the NOSTER office will continue exploring the possibilities for a revitalisation of this Research Seminar.

Teaching staff:
Course description: This ongoing seminar offers a forum for discussion of research in the field of historical studies in theology and religion.

Course objectives: The course aims at supporting the participants during their research and developing their skills.

  • The participant is able to take part in collegial discussions of ongoing work and to present and defend his or her own work.
  • The participant is able to assess and discuss methodological aspects of historical research in theology and religious studies.
