Religious Education in the Face of Non-Denominationalism - Discussion and Reflections of a Basic Text of the EKD Chamber for Education, Children and Youth (2020)
In January 2020, a "basic text" was published by the EKD Chamber for Education, Children and Youth on the topic Religious Education in the Face of Non-Denominationalism. Tasks and Opportunities", with which the EKD for the first time focused on so-called non-denominational people in one of its texts dealing with questions of religious education. The contributions in this thematic issue respond to this publication, but at the same time also to the different constellations and manifestations of non-denominationalism in Germany and elsewhere. The authors were asked to refer in their descriptions and analyses also - be it underlining and/or critically - to the basic text. In this way the contributions are to be read in a double way, as a contribution to the matter and as a reception of this text.
