In Greek education, religious textbooks play a significant role and are often the primary source of learning material. This study explores the visual components of Greek secondary religious textbooks. It aims to answer questions about the types of visuals used, their content and placement, and how they interact with the text. The research employs a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative and qualitative processes. The study also examines the issue of “otherness” and how the visuals in the textbooks can stimulate students' participation and engagement regardless of their color, nation, or personal beliefs. The findings suggest that an interdisciplinary approach to learning and personal stimulation through inter-social and interreligious connections can effectively address the issue of otherness. The study's results confirm the above hypothesis and provide interesting insights into the dynamics of religious textbook visuals.

Key words:

Visuals, interdisciplinary approach, otherness, connection, correlation
