Abstract

Religious literacy is an important topic and one that has been given considerable attention in recent years. It is, however, an imprecise term depending as it does on the hugely contested concept of religion. Here Paul Smalley contributes a provocative article that suggests that RE over recent years has been guilty of producing discontented philosophers rather than religiously literate young people.
