Keywords: religiosity, education, schools, Slovakia, research

The aim of this study is to present some aspects of the intersection of religiosity and education predominantly in Slovakia, but also in the Czech Republic (due to the long common history). In the introduction the current concept of religiosity in Czech and Slovak educational context is introduced. The study then consists of three parts. Its first part introduces the religious structure of Slovakia and the Czech Republic, showing the shifts of numbers between census in 1991, 2001 and 2011. The second part will focus on the overview of research studies published after 2008 on religiosity in Slovakia. Lastly, several research studies by the Department of Theology and Catechetics in Banska Bystrica, Slovakia are introduced. The author‟s personal project on researching the attitudes towards good and evil as religious construct introduces an alternative methodological way of developing religiosity in European context.
