Negative Freedom of Religion and Secular Views in the Light of the Case of Lautsi vs. Italy

Marek Piechowiak


This paper is intended, on the one hand, to present the Lautsi case; and on the other, to analyse the argumentation with particular emphasis placed on the issues of the negative freedom of religion and secular beliefs. It is argued that the argument of the Grand Chamber advocating for the protection of a radically interpreted religious freedom, as well as the arguments of both the ECHR and the Grand Chamber advocating for the protection of secular views as defined by the applicant, is unfounded and may be regarded as the propagation of religious intolerance, and thus regarded as a threat to the freedom of public manifestation of religious and philosophical convictions protected by Article 9 of the Convention.
