The Movement for Reform in the Teaching of Religion in the Public Schools of Saxony. Bulletin, 1910, No. 1. Whole Number 423
Show, Arley Barthlow
United States Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The historical relations of public education to the institutions of religion have been variously significant. While governmental affairs and ecclesiastical affairs have been set apart from each other in this country, the teaching of sectarian doctrines is generally excluded from the schools of the several States, an understanding of the relations actually subsisting between the schools and the organized religion of other lands is greatly to be desired. It can help in many ways to a clearer insight into discussions which occasionally arise in this country and to a better appreciation of the import of changes which are proposed from time to time. This bulletin presents a careful study of the recent agitation in favor of a change in the teaching of religion in the public schools of the kingdom of Saxony, one of the States of the German Empire. Such a study is illuminating for the reason that it affords an opportunity for a vivid setting forth of a single concrete situation, which at the same time may be regarded as typical of the opposition of ideas in other European countries. An index is included. Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
