Crucifixes Banned from Public Schools in Italy

Ad Feedback

Crucifixes have been banned from public schools in Italy.

Europe's Court of Human Rights ruled the display of the Catholic symbols in Italian public schools violates religious and education freedoms under the continent's rights convention.

The ruling came after an Italian woman complained that her children had to attend a school with publicly displayed crucifixes.

Italy's government argued that the crucifix is a national symbol of culture, history, identity and tolerance.
