Arch­bishop Ierony­mos said yes­ter­day that the con­tent of new schoolbooks on re­li­gion must have the Church’s ap­proval. “Reli­gious books must have the seal of the Church,” he told the Rom­fea reli­gious news agency, adding that he “re­minds” the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry that this right was agreed dur­ing a meet­ing be­tween the Holy Synod, teach­ers of the­o­log­i­cal schools and mem­bers of the min­istry’s In­sti­tute of Ed­u­ca­tional Pol­icy. Ierony­mos told Rom­fea that the Church must be able to en­sure that re­li­gion les­sons in schools are not “un­ortho­dox and an­tiChris­tian.” “It must be ad­mit­ted,” he said, “the state is over­look­ing us.”
