[German Version] I. Dogmatics – II. Ethics – III. Education I. Dogmatics “Example” is not a term commonly used in dogmatics. It is probably most often used negatively in the context of Christology in order to preclude a merely ethical interpretation of the work of Christ (exemplary Christology): the “ salvific work” of Jesus Christ is at variance with every attempt to see him as a mere “ethical example” (Härle, 315). This remains true even though we find that…

School Bible

(801 words)

Author(s): Lachmann, Rainer
[German Version] A school Bible is a Bible (V, 2) edition prepared for use in schools, replacing the complete Bible in the classroom. Any school Bible must include a variety of biblical content, remembering that it is designed for students studying in school. There are a large number of school Bibles under such titles (in German) as Bible Selections, Student Bible, Bible Stories, or Readings from the Bible; the variety is such that a selective definition is difficult. The various school Bibles run the gamut from maximum fidelity to the complete Bible to free re…

[German Version] I. History Religious education (RE) in schools, in modern usage of the term (for RE in a broader sense see Christian doctrine classes, Confirmation classes), is the result of the general differentiation process that led to the promotion of religious learning beyond the contexts of family and worship.

Since each country established its own particular forms…

(295 words)

Author(s): Lachmann, Rainer

One of the earliest examples is the Vorauer Volksbibel (1467), although the German word Volksbibel (“people’s Bible,” “popular Bible”) is no longer in common use. The need for such popular editions became increasingly clear during the 19th century, as the Bible gradually ceased to be popular literature. In that context, the question of content, form, …
