The Light of the World

This text covers the matter set out in the 1954 Syllabus of Religious Knowledge for Primary 7 Classes. In addition, Chapters 22,23 and 24 have been included for revision purposes. Catechism answers marked * should be memorised, The answers marked with a cross will have been memorised in the earlier Primary classes but should be revised. The number in brackets after each Catechism answer indicates the number of that question and answer in The Scottish Catechism of Christian Doctrine.. Each chapter is a unit of work, not the amount of matter to be covered in one class period.
The short Life of our Lord Jesus Christ entitled, “Of His Kingdom there shall be no end” is not part of the prescribed syllabus but it embodies the chief passages from the Gospel with which children should be familiar. It develops the theme of the Church as Christ’s Kingdom and can be used as extra reading matter, or to illustrate the rest of the text.

For example, when studying the Normans, he might investigate ecclesiastical architecture, illuminated manuscripts and the development of religious orders.
