The annual collection of scientific articles of the Brussels Theological Faculty partly covers all current research areas. Theology and the study of religion are under pressure from increasing polarization and radicalization. The Faculty of Theology in Brussels has both feet firmly planted on the world stage and offers a number of articles on topical themes in this volume. In this volume, which is an anniversary issue since we face the 20 the volume, we pay attention to current themes such as decolonization and theology, as well as to cultural-historical movements and trends. In an annual collection of scholarly articles from a Protestant Theological Faculty, fundamental research of the Bible should not be missing. Anyone interested in biblical sciences can also take advantage of this collection. We hope to offer the reader insight and an engaging reading experience.
Dr. J. Temmerman is dean of the Faculty. He teaches Religious Studies and is specialized in the Philosophy of Religion and the dialogue between Science and Religion.
Drs. A. Knop is responsible for Biblical Studies and is currently working on a doctorial dissertation. He is also director of e-learning at FPTR.
