Dr Fainche Ryan is the director of the Loyola Institute in TCD Dublin, and she is organising a conference on “Religious Literacy – Challenges for Today”.
Here she explains to Pat Coyle that religious literacy means knowledge of core religious beliefs, symbols and practices operative within a culture. She adds that many have noted an increasingly lack of ‘Christian literacy’ in Ireland, which she believes creates challenges for the well-being of Christian churches. Dr Ryan also believes that the dangers for wider society might also be of concern, whereby ignorance replaces literacy and a space is created where fundamental misunderstandings will occur.
