For decades theology tended to be oriented towards the empirical social sciences, but since the 1990s a shift of orientation towards aesthetics has been observed. Art and aesthetic experience have become more important for the reflection of religious experience. The aesthetic dimension of faith is being rediscovered. Based on different concepts, the author explores the systematic theological fundamental preconditions of such a frame of reference and investigates the chances and limits of a closer relationship between theology and aesthetics.
