Abstract

In a short introduction the delimitation of this article is justified. Then the status of this discipline in the Dutch universities is discussed. This discussion leads to the conclusion that the outcome of this debate depends on our concept of the knowledge of God. Therefore the next paragraphs discuss inquiries concerning the doctrine of God and the connected themes of christology, hermeneutics and ecclesiology. In conclusion, the author proposes three desiderata for future studies in dogmatics: to take account of the complexity and plurality of the biblical witnesses; to recognize the importance of a continuous confrontation with patristic, medieval and protestant thoughtmodels and to accept the real novelty of many urgent questions in anthropology, biology, medicine, etc.
