ABSTRACT: This essay examines the legal condition of religious denominations in the European States’ new Constitutions. It focuses upon the legal provisions concerning the principle of cooperation and its application contained both in these Constitutions and in the German Länder ’s agreements signed with religious denominations after the Reunification. The inconsistencies thereby originated are also taken into account as regards both European legal rules and the condition of religious denominations within national States .
