What is France's religions?
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.
