School:Theology

WELCOME TO THE SCHOOL OF
Theology

PART OF THE FACULTY FOR HUMANITIES.



The School of Theology is devoted to study of religion, spirituality, and deities. Participants here at this school may use rational analysis and argument to discuss, interpret, and teach on any of a myriad of religious topics. For that reason, the school works in close participation with the School of Religious Studies.

Religious Studies is an academic field devoted to research into religious beliefs, behaviors, and institutions. It describes, compares, interprets, and explains religion, emphasizing systematic, historically based, and cross-cultural perspectives. While Theology attempts to understand the transcendent or supernatural according to traditional religious accounts, religious studies takes a more scientific and objective approach independent of any particular religious viewpoint.

The School of Theology can be undertaken to help participants understand more truly one's own religious tradition or can be undertaken with the goal of preservation of religious traditions, reform of a particular tradition, or to apply the resources of a particular religious tradition to some present day problem, situation or need.

So, whether you are interested in Bahá'í, Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, Urantia, or any other doctrinal foundation, Wikiversity is your soundboard and learning environment to find others who think and believe as you do. If you wish to further your knowledge and practice to encompass a richer base for doing so, please, by all means, feel free.


At Wikiversity, a school is a large organizational structure which can contain various departments and divisions. The departments and divisions should be listed in the departments and divisions section. The school can contain projects for developing learning resources.


The faculties, departments, and divisions are not listed in any particular order or preference.
