The article analyses the position and importance of theology at the university. By pointing to the particularity of theology as a science, the first part determines the true place of theology at the university, that is, it establishes theology as an alien at the university. This is to point out that theology, if it wants to remain faithful to itself, to become alienated from itself and contribute to the university, it must remain foreign to that same university. This view also serves to critically observe the contemporary theological science. The second part of the paper shows the particular contribution of theology to the university and thus points to its importance. The basis of these reflections is Christ’s triple temptation. In the first place, theology keeps the philosophical crux of the university – the research of knowledge for knowledge sake. Such a view is set against needless staffing and creating functionaries in science, but also against the exclusiveness of the philosophical approach of science, that is, the absolutizing of certain sciences. The philosophical approach to science is also in danger of losing focus from the subject of research – man. The contribution of theology here is manifested in its corrective role: it reminds the sciences not to lose sight of what is implied by humanity – action and love. It is the intention of this article, through reflection on theology at the university and its contributions, to illuminate and show how theology is or should be the true keeper of the idea of the university.
