    Abstract

    Today, Muslims and people of Islamic origin represent 7% of the European population, a figure that will likely increase to 25% by the end of the century. We are on the eve of that sort of reversal of sides repeatedly threatened, in particular, by certain overseas media, but it is nevertheless a substantial change, at least in the religious landscape. How are the churches preparing for this transition in which European Christianity will be transformed by the presence of Islam? What will be the alternative to the «mimetic rivalry» model between the two religions? Notwithstanding this encounter-clash, Islam may be viewed by some European Christians as a constructive challenge.
