Summary

The need to improve the presentation of religion in secondary history textbooks is examined by this symposium. Religious content, concept formation, and historical accuracy are examined in the report on religion in school history textbooks. A general discussion on the place of religion in the history of mankind offers insight concerning religious concepts and theology. Case studies of six time periods are reviewed to determine the foundations and main forms of the religious phenomenon, tracing its impact on individuals and groups. General recommendations are offered to help correct the problems of the treatment of religions found in textbooks and to suggest that the religious phenomenon be the subject of a joint examination of scholars from various subjects, members of different faiths, and agnostics.
