Challenging Religious Issues:

Supporting Religious Studies at A-Level and Beyond

St Peter’s Saltley Trust is delighted to announce a three year partnership with the St Mary’s and St Giles’ Centre to support the publication of Challenging Religious Issues –  a free, open access online journal designed to support teachers and students engaged in A-Level Religious Studies.  Challenging Religious Issues is designed to bring recent and relevant scholarship and research from the University into the A-level classroom. Three issues are published each year, in English and Welsh, and each issue contains four original articles.

Articles cover curriculum topics within A-Level RS/Philosophy and Ethics and are written in an accessible style by specialists in their field – including academics and RE teachers.  Each article contains a link to syllabus specifications, a glossary of unfamiliar terms, references for further reading and questions for discussion.  Issues from late 2017 appear below (English and Welsh versions available).  Both current and previous issues of Challenging Religious Issues are available from the St Mary’s Centre website, here.
