WHY PUBLIC THEOLOGY?
Exploring the relationship between the Church and society, the program “Public Theology” aims to reveal what it means to be a Church in the modern dynamic and pluralistic public space through the self-awareness of the Church in historical terms: from the first Christian centuries to the present, from its initial conceptualization with all subsequent historical transformations. It will also help to promote its further continuing development.
The educational program proposes to study the topics of public and political theology, which emphasize the relations between the church and society, as well as its "symphonic" relationship with the state. That is why the program has a number of disciplines that help to understand better how theology influences the life of the individual and society as the whole, and how this society influences the theology of the Church.
The program offers an extended explanation of basic theological doctrines, terms, methods, concepts, principles; it will help to establish the relationship between specific theological traditions and modern culture; it will teach to comprehend critically the basic theories, principles, methods and concepts in studying and professional activity in the field of theology.
The study of the Church as a social and political phenomenon and the review of different models of these relations in the world historical development invites to discuss their features in the Ukrainian context in order to understand the role of the church in the social and political life of Ukraine and its possibilities of realization in this complex public space.
For those who are interested in the issues of the Church in the public space, its relations with society.
