Religion is learned from others, and ultimately from a tradition or history; in one way and at one level it is a fides ex auditu. Learning is central to religion. According to Ludwig Wittgenstein, there are two movements, modes or moments in a typical case of religious learning, namely: 'learning about religion' and 'embracing the faith'. The beliefs-that which the religious education teacher aims to develop are beliefs about Christianity, rather than beliefs about God, Jesus, and the church. Religions are, of course, essentially corporate entities; Christianity in particular. All religious traditions have at their heart a set of very powerful, highly affective and powerfully effective rituals, symbols, stories, practices and patterns of life that have the capacity to feed on and feed this personal learning of personal faith. In learning about religion, the style is that of impersonal learning.
