Summary/Abstract: The content of religious education curricula reveals what pupils were studying in primary schools in Serbia, based on the preserved curricula from 1838 to 1945. For better transparency studied curricula have been grouped into several historical periods (from the Principality of Serbia, through the Kingdom of Serbia, Kingdom of SHS / Yugoslavia, to the war period 1941–1944 / 45. and the beginning of the construction of socialism in the DFJ. and the Republic of Serbia in its composition). Living and working in the country, school and church was a harmonious, unified whole. All teachers who knew the content of the religious education, saw it as an excellent opportunity to develop socially desirable moral personality. Therefore, in the curriculum for primary schools this course occupied central place and was the center around which all the other subjects were rallied. The exception was the last period when this course of study was canceled out and the teaching of religious content was forbidden school buildings.
