Aims

The Innsbruck Doctoral College “Catholic Theology in a Globalised World” (DKTh) focuses on significant developments in the church and international society. It aims to contribute to a theology that seeks to help a church facing many challenges and conflicts to better assume its global responsibility, both internally and externally. As the oldest and greatest global player, in European history and probably beyond, the Catholic Church can make a helpful and lasting contribution to a world society in the midst of both radical change and deep crisis. The traditionally high number of international doctoral students at the Innsbruck Faculty of Theology lends itself to such an orientation. In addition to the Jesuit College, it is especially worth mentioning the Canisianum, in which students are also given spiritual guidance. In continuity with this tradition, the DKTh also wants to contribute to increasing the proportion of qualified women from all over the world, both in church and in society. These international students bring a wide range of experiences from very different social classes, alongside conflicts and opportunities, from potentially all cultures.  This diversity and plurality of students is representative of the situation of the Catholic Church after the Second Vatican Council. According to Karl Rahner, the church has entered a new historical epoch, in which it is genuinely to become a world church, i.e. a faith community which is truly inculturated in many cultures and contexts, and which lives its "catholicity" ecumenically and interreligiously. Amidst this diversity and plurality, it is important to ask how the Church today realizes internal unity in solidarity with all people (LG 1; GS 1). It is within this complex field that the DKTh is located and will explore the questions, problems and conflicts that are its remit, to become a laboratory for a "world theology" of the future.
