Overview

"A truly remarkable work of immense learning and urgent relevance. It explores the very roots of the notions of freedom which underlie a constitutional democracy. . . . This is a great work, grounded in vast learning and love of the principles of law, reason, and religion. "—Lawrence E. Sullivan, Director, Center for the Study of World Religions, Harvard Divinity School

"A wide-ranging study of freedom of religion and its connections to the establishment, set in a context of American constitutional law, American political thought, American political development, and most interestingly, constitutional development elsewhere, with 'elsewhere' including modern Catholicism."—Walter F. Murphy, Princeton University

"One of the world’s towering intellects has produced this remarkably learned, multidisciplinary study. Noonan fully addresses the blight of religious violence and bigotry along with the tolerance, the love of the ‘other,’ and above all the centrality of individual conscience that ideally accompany religious freedom."—Norman Dorsen, Stokes Professor of Law, New York University, and President, American Civil Liberties Union, 1977-1991
