Finally, this class contributes an important course to the in-process certificate in Legal Perspectives.

Description:
This course investigates the relationship between religion and law in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim society, as well as modern western “secular” society, considering the question from a theoretical, historical, and contemporary case-study perspective. We will look at the religious origins of legal systems, the ways in which members of religious communities engaged with their own and others’ laws, and the ways in which modern societies have used law to separate “religion” from the state.
