Abstract [en]

This paper is based on a qualitative textbook analysis aiming to investigate what image four selected textbooks, designed for religious education course 1 in Swedish upper secondary school, gives about the Swedish citizen in relation to religion and Christianity, focused on Protestant and Orthodox orientations. And further discuss if it is recognizable and associated with the social context Swedish students live in today. This by examining how the textbooks describe religion, the contemporary religiosity in Sweden and the construction of Christian Protestants in relation to Orthodox Christians . The material was analyzed in relation to previous research, and this papers theoretical basis based on new published literature distributing with contemporary perspectives on the religious landscape - private religiosity in a globalized society and young people’s ability to create meaning, the postsecular Swedes and understanding of religion and Christianity in the postsecular classroom.  

The contemporary religious understanding and production of the religious human, and in this case exactly Christian Protestants and Orthodox, do not seem to be associated with the social context that Swedish students live in today. The lack of education of contemporary religiosity perspective, and the maintaining of social power structures demands for a critical discussion about the didactic challenges in Swedish religious education.
