(409 words)

Author(s): Schmidt, Günter R.

Comenius (Czech 1632, Latin 1657). Most of the languages of western Europe use a cognate (e.g., Fr. didactique), though English prefers to speak of “educational psychology” or “instructional theory” for the formal and methodological aspects of teaching, and “curriculum (development)” for content. The art of teaching originally comprised rules…

Prayer

(13,283 words)

Author(s): Alles, Gregory D. | Reventlow, Henning Graf | Gebauer, Roland | Förster, Niclas | Wallmann, Johannes | Et al.
[German Version] I. Religious Studies Prayer is one of the most frequent and important religious acts in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It also appears in other religions – for example the indigenous religions of America. But it does not appear to be universal. Some Buddhist traditions, for example, are atheistic, and in them there is no prayer in the strict sense; these traditions often allow their adherents to pray to gods (e.g. Hindu gods), but they value the goals of such prayer less than enl…
