1. Introduction

(From the roots of my research interest.)

I was born in 1964 in Sofia, Bulgaria. Every vacation I went to my grandmother. This was in the years 1971 to 1980. Maybe it was the time in which my children curiosity put roots of a different interest in religion. No theological and cognitive, civil, comparative and even bit.

Deep within me has remained the memory of the sound of the bell. When she began to beat - grandmother wiped his hands, arranging her hair under her headscarf, turning toward the sound and renamed by quietly saying something. I could not hear what.

Grandma's house was a road that went all movement of vehicles people - Crossroads to other neighborhoods, hills, and ... graveyard park. At this time of the funeral procession playing music - slow, strong and heavy sad ... You can not go wrong. My grandmother quickly clean your hands, clean apron and stood in front of the small window of the large room. Only thus could see the street. And he sent the last time man. She did not know him, but he paid tribute. Then I realized that not only she does and all grandmothers of my friends from the village.

Home grandmother had a little candle, but she rarely lit. As he grew older I realized why it lights - for us, her six grandchildren. We were "citizen children," "children of the capital." Our parents were successful people - military, economists, but also party members. (Then there was only one party - the Communist. My father was not a member of the party. I remember it only asked why Jews do not have land. Now I know that he told me one of the parables in the Old Testament.)

I had another grandmother. For her know from the stories of my mother. In 1965 she took me and my brother and we filed into the church. There he was baptized in the traditional Orthodox faith. Seven years ago the way to school passed this church, but I'm not enter into it. I remember her pretty yard and darkness that went out the door. Nobody took me there - neither my family nor my teachers. I felt afraid even to walk on the sidewalk, which she is. I knew I should not go there. I do not remember anyone forbade me, but no one encouraged me to go...

These are some of my memories. These are the memories of many of my peers - a whole generation of Bulgarians trampled religious knowledge and immature faith. This next generation grow - without religious knowledge and unfamiliar faith. It comes third - without supports identity consciousness and morality. Without memories candle, bell and cross...

In this article commenting not only return, it comes to a new beginning, the birth of faith to light. We're been preparing our children for Bulgarian meetings with diverse world - multicultural, interfaith, supranational world.

2. Civic Educatoin and Religion In Bulgarian School

Civic education in Bulgaria has its own traditions from the time of formation of a free, Bulgarian state. Prominent Bulgarian teachers contribute to the promotion of civic education. These are D. Katzarov, M. Geraskov , D. Noykov, D., Shanov, B. and others. First lessons "citizenship knowledge" published in the magazine "School Diary", edited by Joachim Gruev. The subject "Civic knowledge" present for 50 years in the curricula of the Bulgarian school. The first textbook "Civic knowledge" is authored by N. Stanev in 1894. Then, until 1944 students are offered a variety of books with authors Negentsov E., Nikolov, D., Kostov, D., Vassilev Ev. etc

A brief overview of the pedagogical periodical press issued at the dawn of liberation shows democratic enthusiasm, faith and tolerance of Bulgarian teachers. On the pages of the magazine "Campus Almanac" of 1900 was published the Law on National Education of 1891. It states that the main resources for implementation of the education policy of "mental and moral development of the people" become subjects civic learning and history (art. 1). Compulsory subjects in primary school are morality, the Law of God, Civic Education (art. 28). In the compulsory subjects at secondary school are set Faith and Civil learning (art.123).

In the magazine "School Practice" in 1907 he published one of the first methods of teaching civic learning. In the article "How to assemble the materials on civics" systematize global themes:

1. Family. Kinship;

2. School, teacher, student. Relationships; Rights and responsibilities;

3. Neighbours. Their relationship. Customs between them. Different nationalities as neighbors;

4. Crafts - master, journeyman, apprentice. Relations between them. Factories;

5. Population by religion and nationality. Customs. Relations between them. Solidarity between them;

6. Private and common property. Inviolability of private property;

7. Governance, municipal councilors. Different nationalities and municipal council. Mayor. Management of churches and schools.

8. Center district. Police.

9. National Assembly. Prince ministers. Equality. Inviolability of private property houses. National education.

10. Relations between the countries foreign policy contracts.

A year later in the article "How to teach civics in elementary school" (referred magazine{1}) presented new topics. They are related to civil, political, electoral and voting rights; virtues and education needed by modern man. Viewing the way of teaching civics - through to life. According to the author of the article, the aim of civics is "to familiarize students with the society, with the structure of state and government to learn and understand the civil and political rights, types of state institutions." In the initial sections require advance preparation for the adoption of the specific matter of civil doctrine. The article offers one of the first methods for training and education of students from I - IV compartment in civics. Topics are distributed as follows: First Ward - topic: family; Second section - entitled "Transition from family to community"; Third Division - entitled "Municipality (school); Fourth Ward - on "Country".

In 1910 in the article "Materials for teaching civics in Division IV"{2} definition of the purpose of civic education "to introduce children to the state system and its organization". Available Technology model for training students I - IV division aimed at the general cultural evolution that has elapsed human society.

Analysis of the topics of civics directed to meaningful interaction between civil and religious teaching in school. In the reviewed educational models is a leading theme of family and kinship. It knows that historically and culturally in Bulgarian schools teach children from different families - Christian and Muslim. In other words: each child tells Bulgarian for his family, for example: "My dad says Ivan," or "My dad says Ahmed." In this sense, the relations between the neighbors understand and interaction between different confessions. This is actually the beginning of education for interfaith tolerance. Through civic knowledge children learn and adopt different cultural models. (Theme three in the magazine "School Practice", 1907) In issue five thematic content developed in the discourse of solidarity and awareness of the Bulgarian population as a set of "faith and nationality".

Aspects of interfaith tolerance are found in the contents of seven topic. Give knowledge about the management of churches and schools, because at this stage they are seen as enlightening and educational institutions.In the educational tradition of the country are discovering different methodological models for teaching civics. Some follow the psychological mechanism of absorption of the knowledge classes. In other leaders have historical knowledge. But the context of both nations, and the other is to reflect the true trends in the society in which students bring. And even then it was - interfaith and multicultural. It is therefore considered that civic education has its religious dimension in knowledge.

***

As stated by school documentation from the time of the post-liberation period (after 1878), in parallel with the study of civic education continues to study subjects such as religion, morality, laws of God. For a long time these subjects are studied together in school and thus the new generation receives knowledge about democracy, but religious and moral tradition continues in Bulgaria.

Orthodox Christianity is a traditional Bulgarian religion. It is deeply woven into the social, educational and cultural development of the country. The historical roots of Christianity in Bulgaria officially dating from 864 - 865 years. In 886 years the brothers St. St. Cyril and Methodius laid the foundation for the development of Bulgarian written speech. But history remembers and celebrates the works of Clement, Naoum, Angelarius, Sava and Gorazd. They are equally figures of Church and Education. Therefore, in the historical memory of the Bulgarian nation and faith school are inseparably linked. In Bulgarian history faith and education grow in unity and find its place in the monastery, Renaissance, Post-Liberation schools. The role of the Orthodox Christian religion is historically linked to national identity and consciousness of the Bulgarian nation. The traditional attitude towards religion was preserved after the liberation from five centuries of Ottoman rule. Her study, accompanied by the study of civics (today: civic education), formed and developed not only the national consciousness and patriotism, and consciousness of value and tolerance of different religions. Review of school records can be concluded that subjects civics and religion are brought up several generations of Bulgarian students - Christians, Muslims, Jews. In the heyday of post-liberation Bulgaria Citizenship and traditional religion evolve in parallel. As a subject religion - religion is equal to mandatory subjects - Bulgarian language, arithmetic, geometry, etc. According to the legislation of Marin Drinov (1881) Faith began to be taught in the third grade, after students have already learned sufficient to read, write and calculate. Law of 1881 it moved a year later - fourth grade, two hours a week. Following are a few changes for the classes in which to study religion, not questioning his education and nurturing role (National Education Act of 1908 and of 1909).

An important element of the Enlightenment Act of 1891 is the ability to organize and operate schools of non-Orthodox Christian communities / Section II "Private Schools", Chapter 17, art. 198 / and Muslim faiths schools / Chapter II "Private schools Chapter 18, art. 204 /. As control on general subjects is carried out by a school inspector. An important requirement is that teachers in Muslim schools are Bulgarian nationals. This is a normative act that closes the path of interfaith tolerance; leaves door of historical inter-religious communication open. And one of the historical reasons to seek educational opportunities for the development of interreligious tolerance. An important historical fact is that in 1880/1881 Bulgarian schools were 866 (Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant). For the same years the Turkish schools are 471 763, Greek 58 of 48, Jewish 13 of 14, Armenian and from 4 to 5.

Democratic school college in post-liberation Bulgaria turns to a number of European practices at the time. In the specialized publications, there are many translated materials related to the methodology of teaching religion in primary schools. First methodological training lessons in religion - Orthodox Christianity, published in the journal "Teacher. Public educational magazine" from 1896. There are translated materials Sample lesson: Act of God. Son of Jacob. (From the preparations - training in St. History R. Staude). In subsequent editions{3} published lessons to learn prayers in the lower divisions "Good Lord" as the author has written: "teacher Cнirpan". Perhaps the anonymity of the author is dictated by the uncertainty in the proposed methodology. Looking, however, described lesson stands out his ability to successfully implies foreign experience to the needs of the Bulgarian school.

Professional reading reveals also that together with religious education is taught civics and morality. Important for this article is the fact that in 1907 in the journal "Academic Review" raises the question of the nature of the concepts of "doctrinal training" and "religious education". The beginning of a debate that today finds its projections. "... Citizen of a modern state should not be left without any knowledge of religion. This need can be met if students learn about the history and basic teachings of the major religions, which does not serve any creed and conscience of students attached to any dogmas. The question of how it should happen "religious education" is... purely methodological. (In translation article "Bekenntniserziehung oder Unterricht uber Religion? - Die Deutsche Schule. X. Jahrg. 10. Heft. S. 615 - 622, p. 44).

Unfortunately, this idea remains underappreciated ...

***

In the period 1944 - 1946, in the communist regime consistently and systematically prohibiting the subject religion in schools. It is not allowed and alternative knowledge of religion as a cultural and historical values; as the festive spirit and tradition. In order № 151 of 15/01/1946 d of the Ministry of Education read: "School to remain completely neutral towards religion. Religious education in any form is not allowed. " Begins deleting one up period, important for the Bulgarian national spirit. This related to traditions, faith and glorious history. In this period of ideological education and civil politicization generations not touch the value norms of three religions that coexist in our country: "Thou shalt not steal!", "Do not lie", "Love your father and your mother" (Judaism, Christianity); "Do not touch the property of the orphan," "Give your relatives right, and the needy, and the passenger, but not spend wastefully !," do not kill your children for fear of poverty! "(Islam). Traditionally, religious holidays are marked in a narrow family circle. Do not know the essence of the holidays as "Christmas Eve", "Christmas", "Easter", "Assumption". Due to the lack of religious cultural models, knowledge and interaction are suppressed for a long period tolerant interfaith relations. They remain in the family and community level in small villages in Bulgaria. They are now a model for sustainable peaceful co-existence of Bulgarians from different faiths. In the Bulgarian school is not exported correctional and educational lectures about communication between different ethnic groups in Bulgaria.

The period of ignorance and illiteracy in terms of religion as a cultural fact of democratic rights and responsibilities placed rising generation unable to react to different sects and dependencies. Place it impossible to make choices and take correct decisions during the democratic changes. The collapse of a system in which families are formed and worldviews, and undermines the actions of many young people. On the other hand gave birth to personalities and leaders in which religious feeling and knowledge is minimized so that today still the reflecting on the spiritual potential of the Bulgarian nation. Debunked educational ideology raises the need to seek educational potential that can not be ideological. Namely: the principles of democratic citizenship and moral religious norms. With the democratic changes in 1998 again raised the need for the introduction of civic education and religion in the Bulgarian school.

Today, learning object religion (Christianity / Islam) is part of compulsory, subjects in the Bulgarian school. However, for years he was at the center of the debate over whether to study and to learn why. Today the debate adopt other guidelines - how to study and what to study. And while the way of suspicion is walks, the need for knowledge of communication skills in a multicultural world is increasing.

Today the civil discourse of religious knowledge has emerged as one of the modern models of religious education. Leading there are the principles of political and methodological pluralism. In the following presents a new model of training in civic education and religion. It arises from the real need school - in a classroom to train children from three different confessions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

3. Civil Discourse Religious Knowledge

The basic principles related to the civil discourse of religious knowledge related to equality, freedom, democracy, humanism, political pluralism (public, educational, methodological). As political and educational pluralism are key exponents of the idea of development of inter-religious tolerance. The Constitution of the Republic of Bulgaria states that: all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights; all citizens are equal before the law while not allowing restrictions of rights based on race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, religion, education, etc. A guiding principle in the Education Act is the principle of equality. He acknowledges as essential: the interest and motivation of each child and student; equal access and inclusion; non-discrimination; preservation of ethno-cultural diversity. The principle of equality creates conditions for the acquisition of competences: understanding and applying the principles of democracy, understanding and upholding human rights and freedoms, active and responsible citizenship. One aim of this principle is the formation of national and citizenship, tolerance and respect for national, cultural, linguistic and religious identity of every citizen. Formation of tolerance and respect for the rights of children, students and people with disabilities.

Equality is a fundamental right of citizens. In terms of pre-school and school education "everyone has the right to education" (Article 1). Secular education in Bulgaria is regulated by law. In this sense, it must be said that the civil discourse of religious knowledge without prejudice to the secular education. It provides an opportunity to observe the right of everyone to receive information and knowledge about their own religion. Civil discourse allows religion to be seen as a cultural fact. Civil discourse of religious knowledge outlines how - how ?, religions to study in historical, philosophical and cultural aspect.

An important priority in Bulgarian education is intercultural communication. In modern social conditions, the need for pedagogical interaction with families and their children of school age, "resident" in the country. This priority implies the preparation of teaching staff fluent not only knowledge but also methodologies, techniques, technologies to interact in an intercultural environment.

An important insight into the civil discourse of religious knowledge is political pluralism. Constitutional understanding is that the political system is one of the public systems. Religions in their social and educational function are regulated under freedom. Such as freedom of conscience, freedom of thought, choice of religion, religious or atheistic views shall be inviolable. The State shall assist the maintenance of tolerance and respect between believers of different religions and between believers and non-believers.

Bulgaria is among the first countries to sign the Convention on the Rights of the Child as ratified in 1991. Important for this article is the issue of responsible active position of the child on his own personality. In this context, activity and responsibility associated with the right to information. To be meaningful consultation with children, it is necessary documents and processes are accessible and comprehensible to them. This requirement is deeply embedded in the curriculum for interfaith tolerance presented below. "Listening" to the children and the ability to hear is a challenge that requires real change. Listening to children should not be seen as an end in itself but as a means for the realization of their rights. It has become one of the guiding principles in designing the curriculum "Education for interfaith tolerance".

Guarantees of education and development of children, providing that the child's education involves the acquisition of knowledge about their rights, national, universal and spiritual values. In instilling respect for the rights of others is an essential part of the obligations of the child. For this responsible family and community. Particular attention is paid to the actual solving of problems of children at risk, children of minorities, disabled children. Set humanistic principles enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Bulgaria, the Law on Child Protection in the Republic of Bulgaria and the Law on pre-school and school education{4}, are an essential standard for the implementation of educational technology approach in inter-religious knowledge.

4. Training Programs for Students from First TO Fourth Grade

5. Conclusion

Education for interfaith tolerance is built by two basic educational perspectives - civic education and knowledge of religion. Civil discourse of religious knowledge has the potential to educate people with stable value worldview respect and observe the norms and rules of society. And not only that, but people who will lay the foundation of true democratic civil society.

Tolerance, including interfaith tolerance, has the power and role of the scientific paradigm. It contains outstanding issues and means to solve them. It provides opportunities for the selection and interpretation of facts. Education for interfaith tolerance, one of the main criteria for selection paradigm. This is the amount and importance of the problems that can be solved through it. Develop new perception and interpretation of the facts related to perception, respect and understanding of "otherness".

Today the Bulgarian school education is the issue of tolerance paradigm with its two main features - civic education and religion. Because it still does not answer one question in 1907 - "doctrinal training" or "religious education". Today this can be expressed through a holistic approach to education in interreligious tolerance. Rethinking the models of religious education today is based on a new category - pluralism. Civil discourse of religious knowledge is accepted as a framework for the development of interreligious skills and competences. An example of the practical applicability of the concept of interfaith tolerance and the education of students in the program submitted can be seen here - educational film made in 2013 years. Students are first and fourth grade at 137 schools, Sofia. They are trained under the program "Education for interfaith tolerance."

In conclusion it can be said that the understanding of religion as a cultural fact is a procedural strategy to cope Bulgarian public consciousness with a stranger earlier problem. This understanding is ancillary, supporting a tool for society in religious culture and morality. It is a positive move and the idea that dialogue between different religions and secular viewpoints is completely acceptable and adequate to the level of scientific, educational and public debate.
