Chapter Summary

The title of this book, presented in honor of Christoph Burger's 65th birthday, characterizes the great depth of his research interest. During his whole life the correlation between lay piety and academic theology, focusing on academics who are concerned with the devotional life of non-academics, has been at the heart of his research. A central aspect is the transformation of academic theology into catechetical tracts for laypeople, a procedure which Burger formulated programmatically in several publications. The essays presented here are arranged in four sections: Middle Ages, Reformation, Modern Times and Media. They reflect Christoph Burger's broad range of research interests regarding the field of lay piety and academic theology, thus making this an epoch-transcending and interdisciplinary research issue.

Keywords: academic theology; Christoph Burger; lay piety; Middle Ages
