The author, a leading scholar of Church and State relations in Chile, examines some issues connected to religious freedom. Particular attention is devoted to the recent (2004) law on marriage, that gives civil effects to religious marriages. Religious assistance to persons in the armed forces (where there is no formal discipline of non-Catholic religious assistance) and incorporation of churches and religious organizations are other topics studied by the author.

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.
