Religious Education and the Arts of Interpretation Revisited

  • Chapter

Abstract

I was born and brought up in Derbyshire, in the English East Midlands, in a coal mining and iron making town in South Derbyshire. Many of my family were involved in iron making, and I had several vacation jobs working on the blast furnaces at Stanton Ironworks. I went to one of the few secondary technical schools available in post-war England. Here the curriculum centred on science and technology.
