The main thesis of this article is that the interplay between changing world-views and religious development from childhood to young adulthood depends on cognitive development among other variables, including the capacity to reflect on human cognition itself. After presenting the theoretical framework and the empirical research*, the thesis is illustrated by way of five case studies. Then conclusions are drawn of pastoral as well as of wider concern.
