07 SES 13 B, Religion and Religious Education: Past, Present and Future in Europe (Part 2)
Symposium: continued from 07 SES 12 B
In this paper, I use the experience of a Czech doctoral student to discuss why religion education in Sweden can be understood as both deeply Lutheran and neutral and objective. In doing this, I look at the present syllabus in religion education, point to some of the changes that have been made in relation to the previous syllabus, and highlight some of the controversies that arose when it was written in 2010. I also put Swedish religion education and the Swedish educational system in a historical context, pointing to its relation to liberal theology and cultural Protestantism. In addition, I present how teacher education is organized for religion education teachers and how the academic Study of Religions has been an important part of this in recent decades. Finally I reflect upon the Protestant taste of Sweden’s ‘non-denominational and neutral’ religion education.
