This article provides a European perspective on church and state that may
be instructive in understanding current developments in Africa. In
particular, the article explores the fragile inter-dependency of minority and
majority religions within national systems. It examines various ways of

the English religious establishment model for understanding these
concepts and argues for both the inclusion of religion in public discourse
and the protection of religious minorities in the ongoing development of
law and religion in Africa.
