Hans Schilderman – Geloofskwaliteit, een probleemstelling

Quality of Faith

This contribution elaborates the issue how to determine the extent to which a religious faith can meet certain standards of excellence, with an emphasis on religious definition and the means of quality assessment. After a short introduction into the use of the term ‘quality’, I distinguish between a private and a public cause from an internal perspective of faith, followed by a discussion of personal and institutional criteria of faith quality from an external perspective. Finally, I conclude by suggesting a framework for these criteria that contributes to a consensus oriented form of public accountability for faith.
