Poimenical-pastoral work is in need of scientific reflection. This does not just contain the critical reflection of psychological theories in view of the portrayal of man on which they are based, and which is subsequently compared and considered with biblical and pastoral-theological portrayals of mankind. It is much more a matter of bringing to light possibilities as to whether pastoral work can be valued and if so, how to go about it. Valuation of pastoral work is again required, if we theologians submit ourselves to an interdisciplinary discourse and do not wish to practise theology isolated in a critical niche. Confirming the interdisciplinary discourse means connecting theological work with empirical methodology. In the following text (1.) a model of religiosity will be developed, in which religiosity will be seen as a subjective theory of knowledge, (2.) a historical-systematic context of this initiative will be briefly outlined, and (3.) a practical example of a valuation of religious experience within the context of pastoral work in a psychiatric hospital will be described.
