Moog, François – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2019
It would be stating the obvious to assert that education, as it supports growth and allows for the promotion of the human self, necessarily hails from a humanistic perspective. But after putting this trite idea on the table, the matter remains problematic because the very smooth nature of such an assertion covers too well the challenges and issues…

Boeve, Lieven – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2019
Rather than choosing between either catholic identity, or openness to otherness, the catholic dialogue school envisages, through the dialogue with the other, to stir the (re)discovery of one's own identity, and to introduce once again the Christian voice within the conversation. After introducing this project, I reflect more extensively on how to…

Sánchez-Tabernero, Alfonso; Torralba, José M. – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2018
This article describes the way in which the Catholic faith shapes education at the University of Navarra. The two aspects of the institution's identity, i.e. the Catholic dimension and the university dimension, are not juxtaposed and one is not favoured over the other. Rather, they work together and mutually reinforce each other. The article will…

Madero, Cristobal – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2018
The preparation, convocation, and implementation of the Second Vatican Council sparked changes at theological and organisational levels in the Catholic church.

McKinney, Stephen J. – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2018
This article argues that although the preferential option for the poor is associated with Catholic schools there is an insufficient depth in the knowledge and understanding of this concept and the implications for the aims and operation of Catholic schools. The article provides a concise overview of the care for the poor in the Vatican documents…

Black, Paul – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2017
Teachers, both of science and of religion, have to help pupils to learn about the links between these subjects. An effective way to support this learning should start from the beliefs and ideas that pupils already have, ideas which might well be influenced by public debates, often characterised by controversy, between those holding strong beliefs…

Sweeney, James – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2015
Pope John XXIII's final encyclical on the subject of peace, "Pacem in Terris," written after the Cuban missile crisis which he helped to resolve, is an extended treatment of the basic principles of political morality and particularly significant for its adoption--the first time by the Catholic Church--of the discourse of human rights.…
