Reflections on theological education in non-traditional theological contexts: The case of the course Theology of Medicine and Nursing
Umeå University, Faculty of Arts, Department of historical, philosophical and religious studies.
2021 (English)In: Teaching Theology and Religion, ISSN 1368-4868, E-ISSN 1467-9647, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 117-121Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Considering the case of a Swedish university course called Theology of Medicine and Nursing, the essay describes how to establish new and relevant arenas for practical theology by teaching theology in non-traditional theological contexts. Such endeavor requires passion, context and interdisciplinarity, in which the designer and teacher of the course “theology of X,” where X is the context in question, is passionate about theology and X. It is suggested that the teacher has personal experiences of X as well as being a trained theologian (interdisciplinarity) and to design the course so it attracts both theologians and people from the context of X. This creates a dynamic mix in the course of academic (conventional) theology students and students passionate about X that the essay argues is pedagogically important when trying to stimulate to theological reflexions on X.
