Becoming human. Foundations of interreligious religious education and didactics from a Muslim-Christian perspective

Original title : “Mensch werden. Grundlagen einer interreligiösen Religionspädagogik und didaktik au muslimisch-christlicher Perspektive”

Authentic interreligious cooperation in research and teaching begins with intra- and interreligious processes of self-assurance. Accordingly, the basic volume of the series “Studien zur Interreligiösen Religionspädagogik” (Studies in Interreligious Religious Education) is based on numerous conversations between the authors, from which the anthropological starting point emerged, which is expanded by a theological perspective on the processes of religious education and didactics of religion. The principles developed represent approaches and attitudes that support competent planning, leading and evaluating educational processes in plural and heterogeneous fields.

Titre original : “Mensch werden. Grundlagen einer interreligiösen Religionspädagogik und didaktik au muslimisch-christlicher Perspektive”

Une coopération interreligieuse authentique dans la recherche et l’enseignement commence par des processus de prise de conscience de soi intra- et interreligieux. En conséquence, le volume de base de la série “Études sur la pédagogie religieuse interreligieuse” se base sur de nombreux entretiens des auteurs, desquels est né le point de départ anthropologique, élargi par une mise en perspective théologique des processus de pédagogie religieuse et de didactique de la religion. Les bases élaborées représentent des approches et des attitudes qui soutiennent la planification, la direction et l’évaluation compétentes des processus de formation dans des champs pluriels et hétérogènes.
