In recent years there has been an appearance – or re-appearance to some accounts – of ‘religion and politics’ at the European level, exemplified by the recurrent meetings between the Presidencies (Commission, Council and Parliament) and European religious leaders. Some consider these events as indications of the growing power of religious actors at the European level but wrongly conflate power with visibility. This article wishes to amend these interpretations and point to the shifts in organizational behaviour of the two central religious lobbies, COMECE and CSC, which have led to more pro-active and visible organizations. It also seeks to contextualize the role of religion at the European level and to discuss the consequences of article 17 for the future of the relation between religion and politics in the European Union.
