By an analysis of the Danish Humanist Society and the Danish Atheist Society, the aim of this contribution is to consider one aspect of the borderland of the Danish model of religion. On the basis of a relational approach to the study of religion, I conclude that the Humanist Society from an analytical point of view is a religion while the Atheist Society is not. In this manner, the Humanist Soci-ety should be regarded as part of the Danish model of religion while the Atheist Socie-ty should not. Therefore, it may be argued that the borderland of the Danish model of religion is located between these two organisations.
