Law and Religion in Europe

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines national laws on religion and education in State schools. It explores States with, variously, systems of compulsory Christian religious education, compulsory denominational religious education, optional denominational religious education, non-denominational religious education, the prohibition against religious education, and the display of religious symbols and dress in State schools. It also provides an overview of national laws on faith and other religious ethos schools (including their establishment, discipline, and admissions to them). The chapter then goes on to explore religion in prisons, hospitals, and the armed forces, with particular reference to the provision of spiritual assistance, the appointment of ministers of religion in the public sector, the status, salaries and supervision of chaplains, and the accommodation of religious activities in these institutions.

Keywords:   State schools, hospitals, prisons, armed forces, religious symbols, religious dress
