France has traditionally been a Catholic country and today

approximately 80% of the population of France ascribe, at least

nominally, to the Catholic religion. In reality, however, France is

a deeply secular country which has seen the role of organized

religion in the lives of people diminish ever since the French

revolution in 1789 and the separation of the church and state in

1905. The vast majority of Catholics in France do not attend church

regularly or even at all.
