Welcome to the website of the Research Unit for Public Religion and Education (RUPRE) of the Chair of Religious Education at the University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany!
This website wants to make research at the intersection between public theology and education known to a wider public,

  • not only in order to inform people about research results
  • but because public theology and public religous pedagogy claim to contribute to the common good for all people in pluralistic societies.
  • and because it is crucial for public theology as well as for public religious pedagogy to submit their perspectives and research to critical public discourse.

In this sense we invite you to explore our website and encourage you to give us a feedback, for instance by e-mailing to
