Gedankenexperimente in der Offenbarungstheologie? Eine erste Annäherung/ Thought Experiments in Revealed Theology? A first approach

Abstract
Thought experiments play an important cognitive role in many fields of inquiry, especially in physics and philosophy. Do they also matter in revealed theology? In addressing this question, I will argue first why it is important to do so, then elaborate on the characteristic features of such thought experiments in revealed theology, and finally discuss two instances of thought experimenting in Augustine.
