6. Description Abstract Throughout his career, Tim Jensen has called for a secular study of any type of religion within academia. However, with limited success. The present article gives a number of examples of (semi)religious approaches to, as well as religious purposes with, the study of Christianity within Danish university theology, which is responsible for 90 percent of the education of clergymen in the Danish National Church. Secondly, the article discusses and questions the legitimacy of these types of studies within a modern university. A fundamental question is: Is it possible to be a critical scholar and a defender of a religion at the same time?
