Abstract

1. There is a need for a theoretically sound conceptualization of religious freedom. 2. This religious freedom concept must itself be based on a robust conception of society and the state. 3. This robust conception of society and the place of the state therein can be found in the different Christian social pluralist traditions. 4. An institution-sensitive religious freedom conception provides a better protection in current religious freedom cases than the dominant conception based on the principle of individual autonomy.
