Exploring Essential Concepts

These 12 artworks were created by Si Smith for a series of secondary curriculum resource books, Essential RE. The series was written to provide ideas and classroom resources centred around 12 essential concepts that are both at the heart of religious and non-religious worldviews, and also of central value for getting pupils to think about their own understanding of themselves and the world around them.

These essential concepts reflect the self-understanding of different faith communities - that is, those that are central to the faith for insiders - but are also of importance to people who are not part of a faith community, or are in a different faith/belief tradition. Each artwork makes the move from everyday concepts as they make sense in pupils’ lives, to specific religious understandings.

We have listed the units provided in each book of the Essential RE series under the GCSE theme they link to. We have also listed them by the religion and beliefs they cover.
