Abstract [en]

Based on John Rawls’ later theory of political liberalism, this article critically analyses what religious education could mean in times of increasing societal pluralism and a worldwide revival of religion. Important elements of political liberalism – such as the notions of reasonable persons and public reason – are elaborated on and related to religious individuals and perspectives. It is argued that political liberalism supports mandatory religious education, but of a certain kind. Schools have an obligation to provide students with knowledge about religions, and to foster a spirit of tolerance and respect for the demands of public reason. But they cannot legitimately give students the impression that all religions are equally true or false. This makes for a problematic situation: how is it possible to teach students about religion without crossing the line and teaching religious relativism? If it is not possible, then political liberalism seems to be more controversial than Rawls would admit.
