Abstract [en]

This essay is about the representation of orthodox Christianity in Swedish educational material. With the help of my analytical approach inspired by Michel Foucault, I have studied material used in school for the subject Religion. I have limited the educational material in two ways. First, the main reason for this is that I am only interested in material written and produced from the year 2010 until today. Secondly, the material I have chosen to focus on is written for the grades 7-9 and for high school. My goal is to define how orthodox Christianity is presented to the Swedish pupil. The aim is to create a discussion about the ways a religion, generally considered as foreign, is presented in school and what kind of picture of the said religion is thereby created.
