Review quote

wide-ranging collection of `Church and State' documents * Theology ... The English reader should study the unfamimliar American material, which illustrates the value of having both a written constitution and a supreme-court system. * wide-ranging collection of 'Church and State' documents This is a useful translation of many of the main documents on this vast theme...there are superbly good extracts, moving even now, from the two great speeches by Montalembert at the Malines Conference of 1863. * Owen Chadwick, Journal of Ecclesiastical History *show more

This unique and essential reference on church-state relations in modern history collects virtually every major document associated with the evolution of the post-Reformation churches - Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox - in their relationship to the simultaneously developing modern state in the West. Maclear includes royal edicts, revolutionary decrees, state constitutions, religious protests, papal pronouncements, and Supreme Court decisions, ranging from the Gallican Articles in 1682 to the Soviet Law on Freedom of Conscience and Religion of 1990, and follows each selection with suggestions for further reading. The only book of its kind, this volume will be an important reference for scholars and students working in a number of fields.show more
