To describe the indescribable : A qualitative study of the biblical film within the education of religion (English)
Abstract [en]

This study investigates how the genre of movies known as ”biblical films” should be used in education of religion, specifically the version practiced in Swedish upper secondary schools. The problem as stated is that the biblical film has become a common tool for teachers, without a deeper or even general knowledge of what the biblical film consists of and promotes. Using a deductive method within a qualitative framework, this study compiles and analyses the existing scientific literature regarding the properties of the biblical film and the use of film in education of religion. The result is a series of conclusions based on deductive reasoning, drawing from the analysed work. These conclusions state that the biblical film is a tool for teaching about the theological content of christianity, as well as the transcendent aspects and, to some degree, the ethical aspects of religion. The study also concludes that the biblical film should not be used to teach students in religious history, and also not to represent the religions of judaism and islam. With these conclusions, the study creates a tool for teachers to practice while using biblical film in education of religion, and also points to related areas waiting to be studied in the future.
