Abstract

This article introduces Practical Theology as an academic discipline by tracing down its historical development in the West that inspired its emergence in the Indian context. From a Cinderella of theology, this youngest discipline has emerged as a very important critical theory validating every branch of theology thanks to its innovative approaches and effective methodologies. Part I is laying the foundation to trace down the tenets of Indian Practical Theology in Part II.

Zusammenfassung

Dieser Beitrag zeichnet die wissenschaftliche Entwicklung der westlichen Praktischen Theologie nach, die dem Aufkommen dieser Disziplin in Indien voranging. Aus dem „Schneewittchen“ der Theologie ist eine überaus wichtige kritische Instanz geworden, die alle Zweige theologischer Forschung methodengeleitet prüft. Teil I dieses Aufsatzes bereitet den Boden für eine Untersuchung der Grundsätze indischer Praktischer Theologie, die in Teil II folgt.

Keywords: India; methodology; praxis; pastoral reflection
