Abstract

The paper reports on recent contributions of practical theology to public issues in Scotland. The Scottish academic and ecclesial context is described. An account is given of contributions to the domains including cognitive impairment, healthcare, poverty, and cultural identity. Particular attention is paid to the 2014 referendum on independence from the UK. Analysis is presented of a series of focus groups that utilised a practical theological cycle of reflection to facilitate Christians’ engagement with the independence question. A case is made for public practical theology, specifically in regards to recent feminist criticisms of the field of public theology.

Zusammenfassung

Der Artikel berichtet über neuere Beiträge der praktischen Theologie zu öffentlichen Anliegen in Schottland, unter Anderem in den Bereichen von kognitiver Beeinträchtigung, Gesundheitswesen, Armut und kultureller Identität. Auf das Referendum über die Unabhängigkeit vom Vereinigten Königreich im Jahr 2014 wird besonders eingegangen. Der Artikel präsentiert die Analyse einer Reihe von Fokusgruppen, die mit Hilfe eines praktisch-theologischen Zyklus von Reflexion (theological reflection) die Beteiligung von Christen an der Frage der Unabhängigkeit zu ermöglichen suchten. Der Autor setzt sich für eine öffentliche praktische Theologie ein, besonders im Hinblick auf neue feministische Kritik der öffentlichen Theologie.
