For the past quarter century, Europe and the U.S. have been riven by heated debates over the role of religion in public and political life. This edited volume, “Religion, Secularism, and Constitutional Democracy,” steps back from the polemics to reflect anew on the meaning and modalities of religious freedom, secularism and non-establishment that are compatible with or required by the basic liberal, republican and democratic principles constitutive of constitutional democracy.
