In ancient times, there was no question that people believed in an animate nature. However, in the Christian environment, one still encounters the denial of an animal soul. This is reflected in our treatment of the animal, over which we have a claim to dominion. Sometimes it is belittled, humanised, then again humiliated, beaten and pushed away - without being perceived as part of creation and an independent individual. What does this mean for us as human beings? Are we thus distancing ourselves more and more from nature and from ourselves? Together with the zoological theologian Dr. Simone Horstmann and the curator Dr. Susanne Blöcker, examples in the exhibition will be used to explore the place of animals in religion.
