    1. Catholic, but few people care about religion in France these days.

    2. Modern day England has evolved a lot since Anglo-Saxon and Norman times. However the government and legal system is based on the Norman one, not the Anglo-Saxon. The language is mixed. Both were Christians before the Norman invasion.

    Unfortunately not only France but most of Europe cares little for religion. The Great Cathedrals of Europe are sadly for the most part empty.

    Religion came to our ancestors because they were illiterate and the priests scared the hell out of them. In the Himalayas, Darjeeling area they still tell stories of banshees. For 8-year-old that is scary. They start these stories on young kids first.

    1) France is proudly a secular state. Anyway, 75% of Normandy residents profess Roman Catholicism according to some statistics.

    2) Yes, English language is mix of Anglo-saxons and Normans, and law, culture of modern day England is mix of anglo-saxon and norman ones.
