Abstract

[Extract] In the discourse about religious education in the Catholic Church one of the greatest difficulties has been with language and definition. The meanings of terms such as evangelisation, catechesis, religious education, education in religion, religious studies and religious instruction are confused, often lack clarity, and at other times are used with contradictory meanings. Moran (1971, 1983, 1984, 1989) has been a consistent voice in the debate about the language of religious education, and the difficulties that are faced in developing a systematic and cohesive language.
