Geld+Kirche - Das Kreuz der Kirche mit dem Geld: neue Ausstellung im Münzkabinett der Stadt Winterthur

Geld+Kirche - Das Kreuz der Kirche mit dem Geld: neue Ausstellung im Münzkabinett der Stadt Winterthur

07.06.2017

Die Kirche hatte stets ein ambivalentes Verhältnis zum Geld. Zum einen war es Motor der kirchlichen Tätigkeit: im Mittelalter war der Kirchenapparat die finanziell innovativste Verwaltung und eng mit dem Bank- und Kreditgeschäft verbunden. Gleichzeitig verknüpfte man die Erlangung des Seelenheils mit guten Werken, die auch mit Geld geleistet wurden. Die Moraltheologie dagegen sah Geld als Objekt der Schuld und Sünde und suchte mit grossem intellektuellem Aufwand nach Wegen, aus dem «bösen» Geld ein gottgefälliges «gutes» Geld zu machen. Die Ausstellung «Geld + Kirche» verfolgt verschiedene Aspekte dieses Spannungsfelds, das zahlreiche Spuren materieller Art hinterliess und Diskussionen beflügelte. Der Blick richtet sich auch in Gegenwart, denn die Mechanismen der Sühne durch Geld sind auch heute noch dieselben.
