This article considers the apparent contradiction between the secularisation of private life and the way in which the public life in a certain number of European countries currently seems to feature a return to religious confession. A brief description is given of the theses propounded by the theorists of religious economy, who maintain that the near future will witness the prevalence of religious groups with a strong, rigorous identity, which puts them in opposition to those who identify the future of Christianity with its transformation into a sort of civil religion of the Europeans. The concluding part of the essay looks at the various different scenarios of ecclesiastic policy that may derive from the two different perspectives.
