I thank the contributors for expanding the conversation with enriching perspectives.
Of course, my book has its own limitations in geographical and conceptual terms (What is Europe? What is religion? Which Christianity?). Europe is for me the “Latin” Europe, meaning the Catholic Europe after the great schism of 1053 with Eastern Christian Orthodoxy. I consider that the European construction starting in 1954 was to some extent a secular version of “Catholicism” in the sense of a universalism, while the Protestant vision turned into an open secularist perspective embodied by postwar Social Democracy.
