Reconsidering the Role of Memory in Religious Education
Brancatelli, Robert
Religious Education, v110 n1 p52-69 2015
This article examines the importance of memory in the Hebrew bible and how memory lay at the center of Ancient Israel's religious faith and cultural identity. It argues for a similar, albeit nuanced, memory-based approach to contemporary Christian religious education. It analyzes memory through the lens of Paul Ricoeur's hermeneutic of narration and considers ways in which forgetting as well as remembering might play a role in faith formation and identity in the 21st century.
