»I don't feel I have been taught to preach as myself. I've been taught to preach like a man.« (L. Shercliff, Preaching Women: Gender, Power and the Pulpit, 2019, xv). A narrowing of perspectives characterises current German-language homiletics (sermon teaching). University curricula of homiletic seminars make this visible in a good way: female and queer voices, as well as people of colour, are hardly represented here. In the Anglo-American world, on the other hand, there are some postcolonial and feminist concepts in which new approaches to homiletics are being developed. The following article will show how postcolonial- feminist approaches with new perspectives, motives, and dynamics can contribute to shaping the pulpit as a place of religious-polyphonic communication. The potential for more polyphony lies not only in homiletic seminars; the position of the pulpit will also have to be renegotiated.
