Abstract:     
This paper deals with the conflict between Law and Religion in Europe. It analyzes various types of conflicts that arise between those two normative systems and offers a typology of those conflicts. Illustrations of those conflicts include the role played by courts in adjudicating conflicts of rights to religious freedom and other rights; the role of the newly established Muslim Arbitration Tribunal; issues of conflict of laws dealing with the validity of poligamous marriages; and relation between State and Church. After presenting those conflicts, the paper proposes innovative ways to understand those problems in order to dispel those conflicts rather than adjudicating them.
