Abstract: In response to J. Casanova's interpretation of the disestablishment of Catholicism and his argument for a more active involvement of religion in the civil society, this article revisits several models of thought with regard to the relationship between religion and politics (separation, fusion, Max Weber's thesis in Politics as a Vocation, civil religion, public theology, political theology, and mediation models such as christian democracy and liberation theology. Taking into account the merits and weaknesses of each model, an argument is made for a complex approach.
