Ecclesiastical Law has not a strong academic tradition in Colombia as an autonomous teaching included in the Law Schools programs. However, there are many laws dealing with religious matters, especially after the Constitution of 1991. Before this date, the relationship between Church and State regarded only the Catholic Church; in the last decades the growth of Evangelical Churches changed the situation and in 1997 the first agreement with them was signed. The Constitution of 1991 and the following laws based the relationship between the Colombian State and the different churches (not only the Catholic Church) on the principles of neutrality of the State, cooperation of the State with the religious groups and equality of different religions.
