    • in the practices implemented in the activities carried out in and outside the classroom and/or  
    • in the discourses/narratives produced in such activities and
  • how religion is theorized from above
    • in official documents of the European institutions that implement international statements on religion education and/or
    • in the official documents of the various European countries that implement European guidelines.
