Abstract

Whilst religious minority claims have prompted a review of the concepts of Law, Democracy and Pluralism and raised the fundamental question as to the limits that law (as opposed to other norms) should impose on individual freedom in the name of social cohesion, legal responses have in turn highlighted the blurred distinction and inner tensions between the religious and the secular (cf. the discussion of the cultural/religious dimension of crucifixes in Italian state schools in the two European Court of Human Rights’ Lautsi cases) and created new subcategories between “moderate” and “radical” forms of religion.
