Anthropological bases for religious education

Alfonso López Quintás.


The thoughtful and personal knowledge of religion is only acquired through the experience of the free and lucid obligation to the transcendent and infinite Being. Children and young men and women need an essential education so that they can live and grow up with an open vision of life, thus learning different ways of meeting new people and therefore discovering which are the values, virtues and ideals of life. This personal maturity provides children and young people with an aptitude to find out that the religious commitment, far from alienating them, encourage them to get the best of themselves and to achieve the maximum growth of their condition of being persons.


Key words: Religious Education. Anthropological Bases. Vital attitudes: Human ideals and the meaning of life. Virtue and human life.
