|THESE TEACHING GUIDES unfold the history and beliefs of six world faiths through carefully selected works of art, accompanied by clear and comprehensive text including suggested classroom activities.||Spiritual concepts have always been expressed through painting, sculpture, architecture and other arts.
|Religious art clearly identifies a faith's key features, and can reveal the similarities between traditions — such as the "great flood", often a feature of "creation" stories.||Images of sacred buildings, representations of gods, goddesses, saints and artefacts used for worship put religions into a cultural context.
|Comparing the aesthetic style of major religions clarifies the striking differences in their philosophies to life and death.|
“This is a refreshingly adaptable series for schools. The selection of images, drawn from a vast range of resources provides a comprehensive series of pictures which, used in their entirety, provide a balanced introduction to each religion. The accompanying notes provide a good overview of the faith. Teachers from all key stages will find them a valuable resource, although they will be of particular relevance at Key Stages 3 and 4. A highly recommended resource.” RE Today
