Jerusalem and Athens:  A  few  historical  and systematic considerations
regarding the position of  theology at state universities
This  article  investigates  the  question  whether  theology  as  an  academic
discipline  should  be  accommodated  at  state  universities.  This  question
proves  to  be  determined  by  a  complex  constellation  of  historical,
philosophical,  theological  and  political  ~ssues.  In  an  attempt  to  give  a
systematic  analysis  and  evaluation  of  these  issues  a  brief  historical
description of  the  relationship between theology and university  is given and
the  basic  characteristics  of a  university  and  theology  identified.  Such  an
approach  seems  to  provide  adequate  considerations  for  motivating  an
affirmative answer to  the question at stake.
