The relationship between religion and politics is also the subject of publications listed under religious parties (ad 4.3.1) and of some publications listed under voting behaviour (ad 5.2). An important study of the development of religious pluralism in the Netherlands is documented in: R. Eisinga, A. Felling, J. Peters, P. Scheepers and O. Schreuder, Religion in Dutch society 90: Documentation of a National Survey on Religious and Secular Attitudes in 1990. (Amsterdam: Steinmetz Archive, 1992).

For an analysis based on this study, see: A. Felling, J. Peters and O. Schreuder, Dutch Religion; The Religious Consciousness of the Netherlands after the Cultural Revolution. Nijmegen: I. T. S., 1991.
