Cinderella and Her True Self: Narrative as a Lost Shoe of Religious Education
Havel Tomáš Cyril
The article offers an insight into an unusual discourse in the Czech environment. It reflects upon the complementarity of religion and fairy tale. It points to the presence of fairy-tale motives in biblical texts and religious motives in fairy tales. Both are illustrated in the context of Christianity by a commentary on the fairy tale Cinderella by the Brothers Grimm. With regard to religious pedagogical discourse, it then invites a narrative turn in religious education, names specific consequences for practice, and points to the possibility of developing a relationship between religious education and fairy tales.
