Chapter Summary

It is not an easy thing for a civil law person to look for the connection points between the freedom of religion and civil law. This chapter gives a rough sketch of developments that are important for the relation between the freedom of religion and civil law in order to introduce some concepts. The freedom of religion as an international duty for states towards their citizens and churches developed after the Second World War. The chapter also deals with the question of whether there is individual freedom of religion within the church. In order to keep the civil requirements and to recognize church marriage, a solution could be to give church officials the capacity of state officials regarding marriage. According to the freedom of religion and the right on family life, parents may educate their children in conformity with their religion.
