«ΟΡΘΟΔΟΞΗ ΕΚΚΛΗΣΙΑ ΚΑΙ ΔΗΜΟΣΙΑ ΕΚΠΑΙΔΕΥΣΗ: Η διαπάλη των συνταγματικών διατάξεων για την «επικρατούσα θρησκεία» (άρθρο 3), «την ανάπτυξη της θρησκευτικής συνειδήσεως» (άρθρο 16 παρ. 2) και "το δικαίωμα της θρησκευτικής ελευθερίας" (άρθρο 13)».
“THE ORTHODOX CHURCH AND PUBLIC EDUCATION: The conflict between the constitutional provisions for the “prevailing religion" (Article 3), “the development of religious consciousness” (Article 16 par. 2) and "the right to freedom of religion” (Article 13)"
We approach the legal framework of our education system, focusing on the institutional involvement of the Church in the operation of the Greek public schools. We are parameterically answering questions such as A) Does the Orthodox Church have a strong presence in public education? B) How compatible is this with the fundamental provisions that constitute the critical package of the Constitution? C) What is the effect of a Religious entity on Education of a secular state, owing to being uninfluenced by any transcendent influence or dependence? D) How is the fundamental right of freedom of religion (Article 13 & 1) related to the recognition of a religion "as prevailing", which also has consequences on the interpretation of Article 16 & 2, which sets the development of "Religious consciousness" as the purpose of education? E) Is the recognition of the Orthodox Church, as prevailing, a "Procrustean bed" for the development of freedom of religious consciousness? F) How comprehensive is the protection of religious freedom in our country? Three are the main pillars of our research. The first, the direct religious education, i.e. the teaching of the Religious education subject in schools. The second, the interrelated auxiliary form of education (ecclesiastics, prayer, school holidays) and the third, the presence of religious symbols in the School.
