Abstract

The story of the journey and revival of Christian clerical schools in the space of IX-XV centuries is an integral and very important part of our overall national history. If we look at the depth of centuries, we see that the problems of education and the school were tied up and dissolved with the religious problems in philosophy and practice, becoming themmselves Christian clergymen and teachers in most cases. The aim of these schools, generally, were for national progress. They were opened by the Catholic and Orthodox clergy, and later by Muslim clergy. Funding and direction were provided from their headquarters, in order to prepare new local clergy, who would later serve in their homeland. It is understood that from this perspective carried with it the value of a scientific concept and democratic attitude towards religion by claiming the role played by religion in the introduction of the Albanian language in religious practices, which is a special uncontested merit for preserving the Albanian language against assimilation. Incorrect interpretation of the activity of these schools has continued in some way even after the 90s; even today some positions are not correct. The problem of schools can not be separated from the problem of language. Nowadays the problem arises of how to handle these schools in the history of Albanian education, also, what it is their place in history, setting out clearly and plainly what are called "centers of national education". In this context, in this treaty it is described objectively the history of religious Christian schools in Albanian lands from the beginning until the XV century.
