Abstract

If you Google “Citizenship in Austria”, you will find a huge number of references nearly all of which are definitions of citizenship in Austrian law. Can a legal definition encompass all of what citizenship in Austria means? I know a lot of people who are citizens of Austria by law but they are not by mentality. Citizenship in Austria cannot be defined as a “cold” term. Rather it is a “hot” metaphor that can be appropriated by everybody. Having this in mind, we will interrogate how Communicative Theology can lead us to a deeper understanding of citizenship from a theological perspective.
