Research Center for Religion and Education
Welcome at the RCRE
The 'Research Center for Religion and Education' (RCRE; formerly Research Center for Religious Education Research, ZRB), founded in 2011, is dedicated to accompanying, stimulating and conducting scientific research on the connection between religion and education. The center's work focuses on past and present educational processes and its historical, systematic as well as empirical methods. At the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, the FZRB is assigned to the profile line "Liberty" as a structure-forming center; within the Faculty of Theology of the University of Jena, it shapes the profile-forming focus "Religious Education in the Context of Social Change".
The FZRB explicitly focuses its work on current challenges of religious education in order to be able to contribute to a contemporary religious education work in society, media, school, community and family.
