The article entitled “Christian Inspirations in Pedagogy – A Reflection on the Value of Religious Education Based on the Example of the Blessed Marcelina Darowska’s Pedagogy” is an attempt to describe the significance and the meaning of the Christian education in the whole process of education of the human being. The author proves that the religious education is very important for maturity of the human personality and for the whole development of man in all dimensions of his life. The significance of the Christian education is presented on the base of sister Marcelina Darowska’s idea of pedagogy. This analysis has two parts: the first one describes the most important assumptions of the Christian pedagogy. The second part is the analysis of the pedagogical system of Marcelina Darowska. Her motto was “educations is the work of love” and all other rules arise from this basic truth. Next, the author presents the main thesis of this pedagogical system and its principles: (1) God is the most important point of reference for the education; (2) education to patriotic conduct of the pupils; (3) fidelity to duties of your own place; (4) formation towards to independent thinking. Next, the author describes the value of this pedagogy for our times. The following features are also underlined: reference to God in the educational process; education based on references to God; the priority of the education in its entirety versus intellectual formation itself; respecting of the pupils’ subjectivity; education based on truth and confidence. The article concludes with the thought that the pedagogy of Marcelina Darowska is universal, timeless and can be a precious indicator for further research in today’s education.
