Die Heiligen Schriften des anderen im Unterricht
Bibel und Koran im christlichen und islamischen Religionsunterricht einsetzen
1. Edition 2011
How do Christian and Muslim religious education teachers teach their scriptures in the classroom? How do educationists deal with the different interpretations of scriptures and notions of truth in Christian and Islamic religious lessons? What role do texts from the scriptures of the respective other religion play? How is it possible for teachers to maintain a differentiated stance vis-à-vis their own confession without questioning it completely? Are there endeavours to develop a didactics of the holy scriptures based on dialogue between Christianity and Islam?
Questions such as these are crucial to establishing whether Christian and Islamic religious education can maintain a dialogue in methodological and didactic terms. This volume examines the hermeneutic problems between Christian and Muslim understandings of scriptures and the consequences for religious education in schools. The contributions describe practical experiences and assessments and lay down pedagogical, hermeneutic and didactic standards for dialogical teaching of the holy scriptures in Islam and Christian religious education.
