Throughout history, church and state have both played important roles in influencing the common law world. This study of these two ancient sources of authority presents a body of recent research into the intersection between law and religion within the common law tradition. Law a...nd Religion presents a collection of essays, selected for their varying historical, cultural and constitutional perspectives. The work examines the impact of religion on the development of common law, and also considers its influence on societies in general. In particular, the work explores the implications of the segregation of church and state, and freedom of religion. These issues are explored within the context of constitutional law principles in countries such as the United States, Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. With an emphasis on common law traditions, this book will be an ideal text for students undertaking law and religion courses.
