Resumo


In this article the author presents a short overview on the theory of intercultural and interreli-gious pastoral care and counseling. He is giving some explanations about the multicultural situation in Europe, the “synthetic” personality and some definition of interculturality. After describing language and culture as “soft” concepts, religion as a “sign language” and giving some remarks to intercultural and interreligious competencies, he brings an example of a con-versation with a patient in a German hospital to give some insight into the practice of intercul-tural and interreligious pastoral care and counseling. He is ending with presenting a few theo-logical thesis.
