Περίληψη / Abstract
The spiritual capital of Europe is waiting to be rediscovered in new and exciting ways by future generations. The conception of the European “project” since the Second World War formulated by the Czech novelist Milan Kundera – “maximum diversity on minimum space” – encompasses not only linguistic and cultural but also spiritual challenges. Today this multilayered project is accelerated by migration, mobility and the virtual extension of space and time. Teacher students in RE find themselves in the ambivalent position of spontaneously participating in the European project, but lacking the hermeneutical keys to unlock it for the RE classroom of the future. The SpiRiTex-project aims at supporting them by exploring with them concrete sacred spaces, rituals and texts as resources for RE. Through fieldwork RE teacher students will have the opportunity to reconsider the religious landscape in Europe from a “cosmopolitan” point of view. This paper lays out the theoretical underpinnings, more specifically with respect to the context, the scientific orientation and the concretization of the project. New pedagogies and theologies will possibly emerge out of this explorative approach to RE in European schools today.
