Choosing Religious Knowledge

The subject of Religious Knowledge seeks to help students become more conscious of the religious and spiritual dimensions of one’s existence through the formal study of the various religious traditions focusing mainly on the Judaeo-Christian one. This is achieved by a direct study of the main sources which include Sacred Scripture, the Apostolic Tradition, the Church’s Magisterium, the liturgy and Christian morality. The topics are presented in an ecumenical and multi-faith context, thus helping students appreciate better the role of Religion in human experience. Students are encouraged to take a critical and inquiring approach to religion with the aim of leading them to become mature citizens, able to engage in a healthy and sincere inter-religious dialogue.
