Zusammenfassung / Summary
Religious faith, it is often said, contains certain beliefs about God and his relationship to man (e. g. that God exists, that he is good, that he loves us etc.). The present text, however, argues that religious faith can, but does not need to contain such beliefs. Instead it might be based on cognitive attitudes like “having faith that …” which are not necessarily doxastic. Subsequently the author investigates the rationality conditions of such a religious faith showing that they are easier to meet as in the case of a religious faith which is based on beliefs of the same content.
