Systematic Theology is the methodically guided explication of Christian practise in regard of its implied truth claims, its ethically orientating and expectation leading ontological commitments.

Interdisciplinary Dialogue means the communication between theology  and other academic disciplines (inter- and transdisciplinary dialogue) as well as the dialogue between the German speaking theological academic community and theological communities of other languages, notably the anglophone context. The international-interdisciplinary Communication is a genuine task of systematic-theological work, since Christian acting and thinking – based on the trinitarian conception of God, is related to the whole of reality and since Christian faith implies the tolerance of faith in a pluralistic Society.
