How do religious or ideological orientations of teachers affect their professional thinking and acting? There is a serious research deficit regarding this question, especially in Europe and Germany. Therefore, we follow the question of how the religiosity of teachers affects their professional tasks – whether as a supporting resource or as a problematic disruptive factor. To pursue this question, we – building up on pilot studies for the development of suitable scales –take an exemplary look on the focus on religiosity and the religious beliefs in a greater invested study with teachers and investigate their connections with professional convictions.
