Abstract This chapter shows how important are the themes of religions in the scientifical and public discussion in bioethics. Religions are not to be be taken here as direct proposals of faith or belief but as rational and symbolical contributions in the open discussion et for concrete decisions in applied ethics. Examples like organ transplantations offer good tests for such a theory.
