  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Citizenship; Nation; Orthodox Church; Pan-Orthodox Council; Religion.

Greece, Romania and Bulgaria are the principal EU countries where the majority of citizens belong to the Orthodox Church. Their constitutions affirm the freedom of religion, and recognize the special role of the Orthodox Church in their respective cultural traditions. Contrary to European directives on civil rights, the Orthodox Church appears poised in the upcoming Pan-Orthodox Council to redefine relations between citizenship, nation and religion originating, through the Byzantine transmission, in the law of the Roman Empire.
