Abstract [en]

This chapter discusses the representation of religion in European daily press, mainly focusing on studies carried out in the Nordic countries and Britain from the 1980s to 2010. The results of these studies show similar tendencies with regard to changes in the representation of religion. The emergence of three main themes or frames; conflict, culture and constitutional rights, are discussed with reference to theories about increasing mediatization and a post-secular awareness of religion in European societies. The chapter argues that the new visibility of religion in the media over the past decades might not mean that religious institutions become more significant as social actors, but rather that religion becomes more significant as a social and political category for public discourse.
