Café Histoire: La France et la laïcité

Monday 5 November 2012 17:30-19:00


The law on the Separation of church and State was passed on 9 December 1905. This law is often seen as a consequence of the anticlericalism that was raging in France at that time.
It is thus extremely tempting to associate secularism to anticlericalism. But what does secularism mean in France exactly? That is the question Patrick Landri will raise here.
