Best Theology and Religious Studies Universities in Europe 2022 – QS World University Rankings

Best Theology and Religious Studies Universities in Europe 2022 – QS World University Rankings

Modern university science and education began with the study of theology. Theology is a scientific consistent statement of the main principles, postulates of any religion. The beginning of this science was given by the Catholic community, then other denominations became interested in it. In the modern scientific world, theology is seen as a branch of a larger scientific discipline– religious studies.

Religious studies studies religious beliefs, institutions, religious behavior of members of one or more denominations, the relationship between them. Religious studies studies religion in the context of others: geographical, historical, cultural features, traces the emergence and development of religion.


General humanitarian education is achieved by studying such disciplines as:

  • Philosophy
  • Psychology
  • Ethics
  • Foreign languages
  • Classical (dead) languages.

Much attention is paid to ethics, tolerant interreligious communication.

Traditionally, Catholicism and Protestantism are studied at the faculties of theology and religious studies in Europe. However, now Europe has changed a lot, European democracy has allowed a large number of adherents of other religions to settle here. Mosques are being built in European cities, and Islam can be studied at the Faculty of Religious Studies.

In universities, religion is studied as a scientific subject, as part of culture and a modern social phenomenon. This is a liberal arts education that gives you the opportunity to expand your own horizons and find a profession for yourself. Secular education does not mean that a graduate cannot choose a religious career - a multifaceted education gives such an opportunity, there are appropriate specializations.
