Research Projects

Research Center for International and Interdisciplinary Theology (FIIT)

The Research Centre for International and Interdisciplinary Theology (FIIT) is a partner organisation of the Faculty of Theology. It serves the interdisciplinary research of topics relevant to theology and society. It networks fifteen autonomous research areas led by Heidelberg academics from theology and neighbouring disciplines. The FIIT thus strengthens the exchange of theology with the humanities and natural sciences.
