Abstract
The secularization of formerly Christian countries in Europe and the immigration to these countries has led to a great religious diversity.

According to Maria Klasson Sundin, clergyman and PhD in philosophy of religion at the theological department at Uppsala University, then a person, organization or government views on what should be included in religious freedom depends on how it looks on the concepts of religion, freedom and autonomy. Sundin has developed three models for religious freedom which this paper uses to analyze the view on freedom of religion that the new Swedish Education Act's regulations of denominational schools convey. The law says that confessional element may occur in the education but not in the teaching.
The conclusion of this thesis is that the law primarily conveys a functionalist view of religion and religious freedom. The law can be seen as a pragmatic compromise between two more idealistic approaches. (Less)
