Abstract

This is a critical comment of the Crucifix in the Classroom case decided by the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights. The comment deals with three issues: the place of religious symbols in the public sphere, the meaning of secularism today, and the notion of respect owed to parental convictions in the educational context. Each one of these pose a big problem in relation to the place of religion in the European Constitutional landscape.
