About the Authors
  • This volume brings together the work of a wide range of scholars to explore the long and complex history of the relationships between churches and education. Christianity has always been involved in education, from the very earliest teaching of those about to be baptised, to present-day churches' involvement in schools and higher education. Christianity has a core theological concern for teaching, discipleship and formation, but the dissemination of Christian ideas and positions has not necessarily been an explicitly didactic process. Educational projects have served not only to support but also to question and even reconfigure particular versions of the Christian message, and the recipients of education have also both received and subverted the teaching offered. Under the editorship of Morwenna Ludlow, this volume explores the ways in which churches have sought to educate, catechise and instruct the clergy and laity, adults and children, men and women, boys and girls.

    • Explores the long and complex history of the relationship between the Church and education
    • Features a wide range of leading scholars in the field
    • Contains contributions on a diverse range of historical, social and regional contexts, including the early Quaker movement, the Māori education system in the nineteenth century and British Sunday Schools in the early twentieth century
