Summary/Abstract: The following material will present some aspects of the relation between the European Union and religious organizations and churches. We are used to analyze the relation between church and state at a national level of one member state, but I would like to present here the principles of the relation between the two entities as they are reflected in the juridical instruments of the EU or in European jurisprudence.

The position of the EU towards religion is characterized by seven fundamental principles which will be elaborated and presented in the following pages.
