Beginning with Autumn 2021 we will focus on the topic “Structures of Power”.

Since the summer of 2017 we have been looking at the topic of “Religious Authority”, first from the perspective of epistemology, then in discourses of authority around sacred scriptures (especially, but not only, the Christian biblical canon). From winter 2018/19 onwards, we looked at the authority of individuals (ministers, charismatic personalities) in various religions, concluding with an examination of the claims to authority of religious institutions. The results of our investigations are due for publication in the form of an anthology in early 2022.
