Summary/Abstract: When we are talking about education, generally, we refer to a formationprocess that is speccific to humans. That, as education consists into a dialogue between persons, soit involves at least two individuals: one that is the communicator and the other one that receives themessage. But when we are talking about religious education, the factors involved in it multiply,because in this equation there are factors of divine and human nature.From the divine side, GodHimself and His Teandric Institution, the Church, which He established on earth for this verypurpose, are involved. From the human side, by virtue of teandria, the Church is involved, and withit: the family, the school and the religion teacher, as well as the pupil, that is the subject receiving theeducation. This paper aims at presenting the specificity of each of these factors and their correlation,so that the purpose of religious education is fulfilled.
