Chapter Summary

Knowledge is in everyday language a rather unique word, faith is not. Knowledge aims to verifiability, universality, rationality and objectivity. Greek philosophers were the first to distinguish true knowledge from mere opinion or belief. The relativization of the validity of faith in modern times is closely linked to the departure of Sciences of the church doctrine. The historical circumstances under which the turn to modern times took place, it corresponds to that particular theology and church were taken by the awakening of historical consciousness. This chapter attempts the results of historical research in an understandable way and to show constructive ways of the concomitant crisis of faith. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: knowledge; faith; historical consciousness; church
