Summary/Abstract: Religious competence comprises hermeneutical and symbolic knowledge. It also forms the basis for cognitive approaches to religious participation e.g. in church services and liturgical procedures. Religious education classes ought to build up pupils’ religious competence, but there is also a need for authentic, sympathetic teachers who are willing to talk to their pupils and assist their development as religious subjects. Religious education is in two ways subject-oriented, towards man and God. It must not be confused with output-oriented learning processes. Religious education is about more than religious skills, and is based on a successful relationship between man and God as well as from person to person.
