This article focuses on how relevant the guardians of children and young people and their teachers of the Orthodox Religion consider the contents of pupils´ own religious education. The study is based on the key contents and some sub contents close to them for the Orthodox religious education in the National Core Curriculum for Basic Education in Finland (2014). The background to the study is a review of related studies and an overview of the evolution of the nature of the curricula in terms of objectives and content. The data was collected in February 2020 through an electronic questionnaire with mainly closed questions, but also including open ones, and was answered by 372 people. Based on the results, it seems that guardians and teachers no longer consider the main focus of Orthodox religious education to be on strengthening pupils’ Orthodox identity, but to inform the pupils of their own religion. Attitudes to this and other learning contents vary according to respondents’ background variables.
