The programme is open to students who are fluent in Czech and have a Bachelor's degree in theology or other fields of the humanities. It teaches students to understand the historical and cultural contexts in which theological thinking has been formed, in relation to the existential questions of human life. Based on heremeneutics, it shows how the Bible and the Christian tradition has dealt with these questions and how they have been interpreted in the Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox settings. The aim is to learn to distinguish the different views, intepret them in a informed way, work with them, and bring them into dialogue. The main focus is on the study of the manifestations and forms of spiritual life (spirituality), the formation of value orientations and social responsibility (ethics), and selected religious phenomena and traditions (religious studies). Special attention is paid to possibilities of mutual understanding and dialogue in the religious and cultural environment of contemporary Europe.
