Abstract

Given the growing multireligious environment such as the Italian one, the article takes into consideration the concept of religious illiteracy, specifically in educational contexts, a phenomenon that can entail social costs in terms of (inter)-cultural incidents, if not conflicts in everyday places, and hinder coexistence and social integration. Moreover, starting from the course “The trans-Mediterranean space and the Islamic world: integration in the school context”, implemented by the Research Center on Intercultural Relations of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Milan as part of the project PriMED, an initial analysis of several LU (Learning Units) of teachers participating in the course is reported. Specifically, they were asked to design didactic interventions for the class group that could counteract religious illiteracy and/or address the issue of religious diversity. The results that emerged can be enucleated in an obvious need for Interreligious education for dialogue, peace and social cohesion, as a necessary tool to train students in global citizenship.
