This journal aims at providing an updated and exhaustive picture of the evolution of the legal relationship between state and religion in Italy and abroad. The legal status of Islam and other religious communities living in Europe, marriage and family law, the place of religious symbols in the public space, State financing of religious communities, new religious movements are some of the topics discussed in the journal.

The first contains scholarly analysis of Church-State relations; the second collects and comments the most important documents concerning State-Church relations in Italy and worldwide; the third collects and comments the most important decisions of the Italian and European courts, with particular attention to the European Court of Human Rights.
