Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

GGreece is the fourth most re­li­gious coun­try in Europe, be­hind Ro­ma­nia, Ar­me­nia and Ge­or­gia, a study by the Pew Re­search Cen­ter has found. Ac­cord­ing to the sur­vey, which was pub­lished by the Amer­i­can think-tank this week, Greece ranked first, how­ever, in terms of the im­por­tance of re­li­gion in ci­ti­zens’ lives, with a re­sponse rate of 55 per­cent, against Ro­ma­nia’s 50 per­cent. The pre­dom­i­nantly Chris­tian Or­tho­dox coun­try came in fifth place as re­gards whether ci­ti­zens be­lieve in God with ab­so­lute cer­tainty, with 59 per­cent of Greeks say­ing they do. The least re­li­gious coun­tries in Europe, ac­cord­ing to the Pew study, are the Czech Re­pub­lic, Den­mark and Es­to­nia.
