Abstract

Empirical survey data about the church and religion within society are always interpreted theologically against some ecclesiological background. The author shows that recent empirical research by the Allensbach Institute (West Germany) is ideologically interpreted in favour of restoring the hierarchical model of the church. From the perspective of a pneumatological church-model other interpretations of the same results are possible. From this ecclesiological perspective the fundamental ecclesiastical tension between individual freedom and membership of the community can be preserved.
