    Student thesis: Bachelor


    In this essay I will investigate what role Christianity plays in religious studies, compared to other world religions. I will use hermeneutics to interpret different aspects of three textbooks, used in religious studies today. I will look at the Christian influence in the curriculum, dating back to the early 1800’s. After this I describe and summarize the textbooks’ main content, before I discuss my results. When comparing the volume and selection of information about Christianity versus other religions, I find that in the textbooks Christianity is portrayed somewhat different. Some expressions, as well as the selections of information and grades of complexity, implies that Christianity is valued higher than the other world religions in the selected textbooks.
