Within Palestine, Arab Christians are publicly visible as providers of religiously based discourses on social solidarity and the common good, for example in the form of contextual theologies. The paper shortly reflects how far this has to be seen against the background of colonial history, both with British and with German roots, and to what extent Arab Christians construct their socio-political identity against the background of entangled histories as well as the ongoing reality of socio-political crisis today. A second concern is how contextual theologies relate to the European public and how Arab Christian subaltern voices are coming to the attention of a western-European public.
