Sammanfattning: This study aims to investigate how religion teachers in Stockholm work with minority religions in their classes and examine teachers' views on minority religions' place in religious studies and their relation to the school curriculum. The focus of the study is on Middle Eastern minority religions. This study is based on a qualitative method comprised of semi-structured interviews with nine religion teachers who work in upper secondary schools in Stockholm. The theory used is based on personal life interpretation and four general didactic themes. The results showed that only two of the nine interviewed teaches minority religions from the Middle East. The results also showed that the subordination of minority religions is due, mainly, to the lack of time and because they are not mentioned in the knowledge requirements. The teachers also stated that they do not have time to engage in minority religions. Furthermore, the study showed that teachers lack knowledge about minority religions and an interest in teaching minority religions. Regarding students' reaction to the study of minority religions, the results showed that teachers receive positive feedback from students and that they show great curiosity about minority religions as it is a new subject for them. Regarding teachers' views on the curriculum, the results showed that six out of nine teachers wish more time was assigned to teaching minority religions and that they should be included in the knowledge requirements.
