The volume simply and precisely presents the main characteristics of the most widespread religions and religious sects found in the world today, to help children interpret a world that is increasingly based on interculturality and mutual respect. Religions have inspired, and still inspire, millions of people around the world. For centuries they have shaped the best qualities of human beings and directed their actions to grow and prosper physically and spiritually. It is important that every person, children included, has the opportunity to know the stories and cultures of others and, consequently, also the different religions that many men and women around the world practice. Indeed, ours is not only a multicultural society, but it is also and above all a multi religious society – a place where believers of different faiths, non-believers, atheists and agnostics live together.

This volume provides an in-depth look at seven religions:

  • Hinduism
  • Shintoism
  • Islam
  • Christianity
  • Confucianism
  • Buddhism
  • Judaism

For each religion, the main facts and characteristics are collected and explained clearly and concisely:

  • Where it began
  • When it began
  • Diffusion throughout the world
  • The fundamental elements
  • The lifestyle of the faithful
  • Rites and holidays
  • Temples and holy places
