  • Foundations of Christian thought and practice: a model for replacing Old
           and New Testament surveys with an innovative approach to teaching
           religion in 21st century colleges and universities
    • Abstract: Abstract Institutions of faith can no longer assume students of faith, and institutions of faith can no longer assume that a survey of the Old and New Testaments in today’s college curriculum will provide the necessary elements to develop, sustain, and nurture biblical literacy in students. Nor can it be assumed that this antiquated model will equip today’s students with a framework or worldview that values the relevance of religious and biblical studies. This new course (Foundations model) we propose would not attempt to compete with the content coverage of the Old and New Testament survey courses, but rather we would introduce a new concept of teaching religion, which would be thematically-based and require students to learn to articulate a Christian worldview in an intelligent and thoughtful manner. This Christian worldview would be developed throughout the course and based on assumptions, themes, and ways of thinking (issues of hermeneutics) introduced throughout the course. A descriptive recounting of the Foundations model will provide an example of what it means, or rather looks like, to effect religious education and spiritual development in the lives of students at a Christian liberal arts college or university. The Foundations model incorporates six key elements which are as follows: 1. Thematic Organization (not book-by-book survey content) 2. Specialized Workbook Focused on Themes for the Course 3. Weekly Critiques 4. The Final Worldview Paper 5. Integration of the Latest Technology 6. The Role of the Instructor and Peer Mentors.

  • Religious competence and the new National Curriculum of Latvia:
           denominational challenge
    • Abstract: Abstract In Latvia the implementation of the new National Curriculum is oriented towards a competence based approach that focuses on learning by doing and is based on theoretical constructs of constructionism and social constructivism. For the first time since Latvia gained independence in 1990, the new National Curriculum will provide a unique opportunity for pupils to study religion as a phenomenon and religions as traditions. The aim of the new National Curriculum is integration of religious competences in the curriculum embracing all 12 years of primary and secondary education. A working group of experts was created for dealing with the social and civil issues of the National Curriculum, and the group has been given the task to develop six main concepts for promoting a harmonious attitude in learners, which would enable them to feel and act more responsibly in the changing social and global reality. Thus, the objective of the Curriculum will be achieved if the learners choose to act responsibly and meaningfully at all times. The religious education programme has to be developed in a way that it fits into this particular framework. It is anticipated that the new programme will challenge the traditional ways of teaching and learning religious education. The aim of this study is to find the answers to the following questions: How can Religious Education be integrated into the social and civil sphere of the new National Curriculum' What is the best approach to integration of Religious Education into the new National Curriculum' Is there a place for denominational aspects of Religious Education' This study is a descriptive analysis of the particular experience gathered while developing the national standard.

  • Retaining young catholics in the church: assessing the importance of
           parental example
    • Abstract: Abstract Drawing on data from a survey conducted among 9,810 young people in England, Scotland, and Wales, this study examines parental and peer influence on church attendance among 2146 13- to 15-year-old students who identified themselves as Catholics. The data suggested that young Catholics who practise their Catholic identity by attending church do so largely because their parents are Catholic churchgoers. Moreover, young Catholic churchgoers are most likely to keep going if both mother and father are Catholic churchgoers. Among this age group of young Catholics both peer support and attending a church school are also significant, but account for little additional variance after taking parental churchgoing into account. The implication from these findings for a Catholic Church strategy for ministry among children and young people within England, Scotland and Wales is that it may be wise to invest in the education and formation of Catholic parents.

  • Making minority faith (in)visible through religious education: parents’
           experiences of the identification of their children’s Orthodox identity
           in Finnish public schools
    • Abstract: Abstract The focus of this article is on parents’ experiences with and perceptions of their children’s religious education (RE). The data consist of letters from 41 parents of Finnish Orthodox children and youth. In the letters, the parents describe their understanding of minority religious upbringing and how it is affected by different factors like RE. RE is a mandatory subject in Finnish schools, and it is taught in groups consisting of children with the same religious backgrounds. The main questions in this article are (1) how do the parents view the arrangements for Orthodox RE to make their children’s minority religious affiliation visible at school, and (2) what is the effect of RE on the formation of their children’s minority identity' The analyses show that parents perceive RE as an important factor in their children’s identity formation. Despite the sometimes inadequate arrangements for Orthodox RE in school, the parents are mostly happy with the subject and with their children’s RE teachers. RE makes the minority religious affiliation of Orthodox children both visible and invisible: their difference from the majority is exposed, but minority RE classes often take place outside of regular school hours and even outside of school premises.

  • Constants in context: an exploration of conciliar and post-conciliar
           documents on the Catholic school
    • Abstract: Abstract Conciliar and post-conciliar documents provide a consistent stream of inspirational and informative directions for Catholic Education. This study explores the thematic constants within and across these releases, specifically in relation to the mission of the Catholic school. A series of Leximancer analyses, digital data mining processes of narrative text (Leximancer Manual in https://www.leximancer.com. Version 2.23, 2017), were applied to the eight individual and the overall combination of documents. Findings from the individual analyses emphasised the challenges, opportunities and strategies for the Catholic school relevant to time and context. Results from the combined narratives offered a synthesis of these characteristics and revealed four dominant themes; School, Life, People and Communion. The theme of School was linked with sub-themes of catholic, community, mission, education and church; Life, was accompanied by the sub-themes of work, person, human, God, culture, dialogue, faith and society; People, was expanded upon through educational, formation, students, teachers, religious, cultural, different, and social sub-themes; and Communion was reflected in the sub-themes of mission and church. Pictorial illustrations and numerical frequencies of themes and relationships suggested four dominant themes, the constants of Catholic school mission. These included: Mission Alignment (Catholic school mission as integral to the life and mission of Church); Christian Anthropology (Catholic school mission founded on what it means to be fully human); Engagement Typology (Catholic school mission in dialogue with and in service of the world); and School as a Formative Place (Catholic school mission informed by the Gospel and insights of the new evangelisation). A hermeneutic of continuity was established from the individual and collective document analyses, associated research, and commentary by Magisterium leaders. Mission constants and accompanying characteristics were nominated as paradigms of Faith, Learning, Leadership, Community and Formation. These paradigm constants are discussed as holographic in nature and the mission of the Catholic school as a dynamic and interdependent cluster of foundational characteristics.

  • Ethics and religious culture: an inspiring example for religious education
           in Flanders'
    • Abstract: Abstract In 2018, the Québec Ethics and Religious Culture program celebrated its 10th anniversary. The launching of this program in schools in 2008 can be seen as the final step in a profound reorganization and a related deconfessionalization of the Québec educational system, a shift considered necessary to adapt school curricula to the present Québec society, which is characterized by secularism and increasing religious diversity. At present, Flanders (Belgium) is also undergoing a similar ‘paradigm shift’, with all the debates that accompany it. Because there are several important similarities between the present education and RE system in Flanders on the one hand, and the previous education and RE system in Québec on the other, a comparison between both regions can benefit the discussions involving the RE system and improve the future education policy in Flanders, but also in other regions or nations with comparable educational contexts. In this paper, I will therefore address the main similarities and differences between the two education systems and explain why the Québec education system in general, and the ERC subject in particular, could be seen as an inspiring example for future Flemish education policy. In addition, I will argue why some aspects of the present Québec system, and particularly of ERC, are rather controversial and/or problematic.

  • Personal prayer, worship attendance and spiritual wellbeing: a study among
           fourth, fifth and sixth class students attending Church of Ireland schools
           in the Republic of Ireland
    • Abstract: Abstract This study examines the associations between frequency of personal prayer, frequency of worship attendance and spiritual wellbeing among 468 students attending fourth, fifth and sixth classes within 18 Church of Ireland schools located in one diocese in the Republic of Ireland. Spiritual wellbeing is measured by a modified form of the Fisher 16-item instrument Feeling Good, Living Life (assessing quality of relationships across four domains: self, family, nature, and God). The data demonstrate that frequency of personal prayer is a much stronger predictor than frequency of worship attendance in respect of spiritual wellbeing. This finding is consistent with the view that personal prayer is a key factor in the formation of individual spirituality.

  • Benefits of Good Shepherd Catechesis among children with intellectual
           disabilities in Kenya
    • Abstract: Abstract Since Martin Luther, religious education has largely been identified with catechism that used question and answer method, particularly in the Catholic church. For a person with intellectual disability, this offers a grave difficulty in religious formation. Could there be alternatives' The present study aimed at exploring the benefits of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) for children living with intellectual disabilities. The participants were 23 children and nine care-givers in a Catholic context in Kenya. Observation guides and interviews were used to collect data that showed that children with intellectual disabilities had the ability to spontaneously relate with the spiritual world, and in some cases, with Jesus. The findings confirmed that the CGS offers children with special needs the space, tools, and time to get in touch with the Divine through witnessing to the narrative of the Word.

  • Teaching Scripture: moving towards a hermeneutical model for religious
           education in Australian Catholic Schools
    • Abstract: Abstract In 2006 the Catholic Education Commission, Victoria, Australia, entered into an agreement with the Centre for Academic Teacher Training of the Faculty of Theology of the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium, to conduct research which would frame the identity structure of Victorian Catholic schools (Pollefeyt and Bouwens in Int Stud Cathol Educ 2(2):193–211, 2010). As this agreement has now been extended to other dioceses in Australia, there is widespread interest in the project and in how to respond to its findings. Indeed, the finding that a disproportionate number of students are demonstrating strong fundamentalist belief has brought into sharp focus the very way that religious education is taught in Australia. Calls for a new, hermeneutical, model of religious education are loud and persuasive. But while dioceses search for religious education that emphasises dialogue, embraces religious pluralism and promotes active enquiry, this paper contends that they are overlooking a major impediment in the development of post-critical belief; theme or topic-based religious education curriculum programmes. This paper proposes two weaknesses inherent in this design model. First, in reducing Scripture to the role of validating or proving the predetermined theme Scripture is used in a manner that is a priori, an approach that, of itself, invites a literalist reading. Second, as the theme or topic is known by students at the outset of learning any interpretation by them is rendered unnecessary; passages mean what the theme teaches that they mean. These two realities, it will be argued, make theme or topic-based curriculum design incompatible with a hermeneutical approach to religious education. It is to be noted that this paper does not attempt to argue the existence of the practices described. This has been done elsewhere (Carswell in Rymarz and Belmonte (eds.) Religious education in Australian Catholic schools. Exploring the landscape, Garratt, Mulgrave, 2017, Br J Relig Educ 40(3): 288–297, https://doi.org/10.1080/01416200.2018.1493271, 2018). Rather, it offers only a summary of the problems associated with the placement of Scripture in theme-based curricula deliberately framed around Pollefeyt and Bouwens (Identity in dialogue. Assessing and enhancing the Catholic school identity. Research methodology and research results in Catholic schools in Victoria, Lit-Verlag, Hamburg, 2014) own concerns. It is hoped that, in responding to ECSI, dioceses in Australia will consider their use of theme-based religious education. This paper will conclude by outlining a new direction for religious education, one that allows Scripture to speak for itself.

  • The use of history in debates on the presence of religious education in
           public schools in Romania (2015)
    • Abstract: Abstract Religion has been taught in Romanian public schools since 1864, only discontinued during the communist regime. The decision of the Romanian Constitutional Court in November 2014, through which attending religion classes had to be confirmed through written request by parents or high school students aged 16 triggered fiery debates in the Romanian society. Two opposing entities were formed, one in favour of religion classes the other against it, each trying to convince the public about the righteousness of their own positions. The aim of this article is to analyse the degree of historical argumentation found in the ensuing debates. One could notice the predominance of historical arguments used by the proponents of religion classes, the most frequent explanation being that of the symbiosis between Romanian Orthodox Church and Nation. Consequently, the appeal to emotions was crucial in the dispute, the historical argument being one of the most appropriate persuasion techniques.

  • Learning standards in a non-standard system: mapping student knowledge and
           comprehension in ultra-orthodox Talmud Torah schools
    • Abstract: Abstract The Jewish ultra-orthodox (Haredi) Talmud Torah schools have been consistently resistant to the process of standardization in content, measurement, and evaluation, in contrast to the Israeli state education system which has progressed steadily in these areas. Talmud Torah schools are private elementary schools for ultra-orthodox boys. Studies are religious and the main subject of study is the Gemara (Talmud). For religious and ideological reasons these schools insist on total independence at all levels and resist assessment or regulation of any kind and as a result have rarely been studied by Israeli or international researchers. The present study examined the contribution of a unique Gemara study program to a sample of 159 sixth grade boys in Talmud Torah schools. Students completed questionnaires to evaluate general ability and language skills, Aramaic vocabulary skills, and knowledge of Gemara. After the intervention, the test results of the experimental group were found to be superior to those of the control group. The findings also provide first insights into the performance of ultra-orthodox students on verbal and general ability measures compared to the general Israeli school population. Thus, this study provides the first standardized measurement and evaluation of learning and literacy in the previously inaccessible Haredi student population.

    • Abstract: Abstract Recent decades have witnessed a change in European governments’ policies from benign neglect to active management of religious diversity, where Islam is often seen as the most challenging religion for the European social order. However, the ways in which this ‘management’ is justified and undertaken varies from country to country and depends on the situation at hand. This paper will take up the issue of Islamic education in Finland and Ireland, where it is incorporated into the public school system with the state taking an active role in order to control how Islam is taught. The main argument of this article is that the ‘management’ of Islamic education in both of these countries is ridden with contradictions arising from the difficulty of balancing between an emphasis on particular national traditions, on the one hand, and public policies concerning religious diversity, on the other. Theoretically, the article will employ the perspective of multilevel governance in relation to religious diversity, which helps to widen the analytical lens from regarding the state as a primary explanatory factor to examining different agents of the civil society.

  • When teachers face religion in public education. Case examples from
           Finnish public education
    • Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this article is to describe with examples what kind of challenges there are in the handling of religion in public school. This is done with case examples from interactions between teachers and Somali Muslim pupils and guardians in a school. The school is located in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area and has 350 pupils in grades 1–6. The qualitative data used here includes ethnographic field notes and field interviews, interviews and group interviews. The participants include education professionals and pupils from the school. In the article, three kinds of examples of challenges with regard to handling religion in public education are described. These are nationalising/ethnicising Islam, isolating religious education from lived religion and religionising cultural practices.

  • Human rights in relation to education about religions and world views: the
           contribution of the Council of Europe to classroom religious education
    • Abstract: Abstract The article considers human rights and their relevance to an impartial and inclusive form of religious and world views education. Such a form of education is justified because of its intrinsic worth as part of a liberal education, and its instrumental value to the personal development of students and to their social development as members of societies in which people need to live together, despite holding different religious and secular beliefs. It is argued that the human rights codes are especially relevant to the argument for inclusive religious education related to the social development of young people. The Council of Europe’s work in this field since 2002 is summarised, including its publication of Signposts (Jackson in Signposts: policy and practice for teaching about religions and non-religious world views in intercultural education, Council of Europe Publishing, Strasbourg, http://www.theewc.org/Content/Library/COE-Steering-documents/Recommendations/Signposts-Policy-and-practice-for-teaching-about-religions-and-non-religious-world-views-in-intercultural-education, 2014). Its impartial (secular but not normatively secularist) approach sees the human rights codes as vital reference points for discussions about the limits of individual freedoms, including ‘freedom of religion or belief’, supports forms of ‘education about religions and beliefs’ which combine impartial study with opportunities for student dialogue and exchange, and regards such education as complementary to forms of faith nurture within families and communities.

  • Memorization and focus: important transferables between supplementary
           Islamic education and mainstream schooling
    • Abstract: Abstract This article presents the results of a participative study, involving a group of 27 British Muslim students aged 15–18, who were given the opportunity to reflect on the implications of having participated in two different ‘traditions’ of education: that is, Muslim supplementary education (in its various forms) and state mainstream schooling. The project was participative in that school senior managers had invited the researchers to carry out the research as part of their constant striving to identify the conditions under which students learn best. Both the design and outcomes of this research programme are presented and discussed in this article. One of the main findings is that the students experience the skills of memorization and focus as positive transferables. The findings will be discussed in terms of the concept of liturgical literacy.

  • ‘Why can’t you just eat pork'’ Teachers’ perspectives on
           criticism of religion in Norwegian religious education
    • Abstract: Abstract Over the last 20 years, religious education in Norway has received massive public and academic attention, due in part to clashing opinions regarding the role of such education in a generally secular society. As a result, the subject’s name and curricula have been changed or modified several times. Currently, the curricula for ‘Knowledge of Christianity, Religion, Philosophies of Life and Ethics’ (abbreviated in Norwegian as KRLE) states the teaching must be critical. This empirical study examines how teachers themselves interpret this requirement. We particularly emphasise the role of criticism of religion, including both the teachers’ planned teaching about criticism of religion and the criticism spontaneously uttered by students. The findings demonstrate students’ criticism of religion often is of a moral, secular or ridiculing character, and is frequently based on prejudice, stereotypes, generalisations or essentialist notions. This article discusses how teachers can use students’ spontaneously uttered criticism of religion as a starting point to develop intercultural competence through education.
