This project provides a theory for a programme of religious education which will attempt to mitigate the breakdown between belief and action in adolescence. It involves a critical analysis of the recent literature regarding the stages of religious development and an examination of how those stages compare to the stages of intellectual development as described by Piaget, and of emotional development as described by Erikson and Freud.
