Bernardini, Adalberta / Bernardini, Armando:Italy: which dirction shall religious education take?
An historical Perspective:
In order to understand the present situation of religious education in Italy - and its future perspectives - it is necessary to make a very brief historical overview of religious education in the country.

AEI we have faith in peace building and this belief is
accompanied by hope and work in spite of the almost

Zovkic, Mato: Relations between Christians and Muslims in Bosnia-Herzeovina on the eve of new general elections
I would like to draw attention to some delicate
problems of religious identity and national loyalty from the
point of view of religious and ethnic communities in our
country of Bosnia-Herzegovina. Religious identity surpasses
the boundaries of an ethnic group or country, but in this
region, where Catholicism, Orthodoxy, Islam and Judaism have
been meeting for centuries, ethnic and religious identity
