Junior Professorship Islamic Foundations of Belief, Philosophy and Ethics

Prof. Mira Sievers

Proceeding from a non-denominational notion of theology, this professorship focuses on various theological and philosophical manifestations of Muslim thinking in regard to fundamental religious questions. The emphasis here is on Islamic ethics, the Islamic systematic theology (kalām) and gender-related issues in Islamic theology. The research particularly focuses on Islamic beliefs and theological concepts through the lens of intellectual history; it also involves reflecting upon their significance for the world of today.
