Description

Church and State relations are not frequently taught in the Faculty of law of the Chilean Universities. Therefore, this book is particularly interesting as it provides an overview of some central issues of the ecclesiastical law in the Republic of Chile. After an historical introduction, the author deals with the sources of law and the basic principles of the Church–State system in Chile. Specific chapters are then devoted to religious freedom, legal personality of religious entities, religious assistance and the tax system that applies to religious organizations.

Table of contents

Nowadays, involvement in spiritual care in public institutions or chaplaincy is one of the highly current topics connected with activities of religious communities. Spiritual care is the spiritual assistance provided by religious communities and their members to the benefit of the military, police, prison system, health care and social services, education, fire brigades, victims of crime and disasters, asylum seekers and other areas.
The monograph “Spiritual Care in Public Institutions in Europe” focuses on these topics in detail. It is written by leading experts in the field of religion law from several member states of the European Union and from Switzerland. The book is organized in a well-arranged way according to a unified system and offers the general public orientation in the important and constantly developing area of activity of religious communities in the public sphere. It is published as part of the prestigious publication series „Kirche und Recht – Beihefte“.

Law, Religion and COVID-19 Emergency

The health emergency caused by the contagious virus SARS-CoV-2 is having many consequences also on religious rules – more broadly for the difficulties raising from the possible contradiction between the respect for the measures taken by civil authorities and religious rules. International law allows for the limitation? of the right to religious freedom on the grounds of protection of public health, and we are witnessing a situation of unprecedented restrictions on the global scale. As scholars engaged in the study of the legal regulation of the religious phenomenon, we have wanted to create a space to collect documents, comments and other useful materials related to the emergency, in order to assess the outcomes of the normative choices made by civil and religious authorities.
