This essay deals with the characteristics, aims and methods of contemporary teaching of religion and catechesis in the Czech Republic in the context of religious, moral-value and political orientation of the teachers of religion and the catechists. An important part of the present essay is the evaluation of the exploratory research done in the framework of the TRES European Socrates project. From the evaluation of this research above all emerges a clear contradiction. It is the contradiction between the religious situation of the contemporary Czech society and the mono-religious way of teaching which to a great extent is influenced by the orthodox attitudes of the teachers.
