Because religious beliefs and practices develop within an ongoing and dynamic religious traditioning process that is socio-culturally and historically conditioned, religious representations - being shaped by culture - are open to cultural critique. This raises challenging implications for teachers in Catholic schools who are charged with the transmission of institutionally-endorsed church teachings. This paper identifies some relevant insights and analytical frameworks, from the work of contemporary theorists institution in responding to this challenge. Specifically, the paper focusus on a critical pedagogical approach to reading the Christian Scriptures; an approach which encourages students to participate actively in the ongoing Catholic religious traditioning process.
