Centre for Religious Studies
Religion matters in society. The Centre for Religious Studies (CRS) operates with the vision that religion plays a central role in societies around the world. “Religion” can only be studied and understood as being embedded in “culture”. This context and the interaction with other cultural and societal elements—such as law, politics, science, art, philosophy, and economy—give “religion” its meaning and cultural place. The study of religion thus requires a multidisciplinary approach. That is why the CRS combines theories and methods of the humanities, social sciences and even science & technology.
