  1. Research Handbook on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Law and Religion

    Research Handbook on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Law and Religion

    Edited by Russell Sandberg, Norman Doe, Bronach Kane, Caroline Roberts
    Following 9/11, increased attention has been given to the place of religion in the public sphere. Across the world, Law and Religion has developed as a sub-discipline and scholars have grappled with the meaning and effect of legal texts upon religion. The questions they ask, however, cannot be answered by reference to Law alone therefore their work has increasingly drawn upon work from other disciplines. This Research Handbook assists by providing introductory but provocative essays from experts on a range of concepts, perspectives and theories from other disciplines, which can be used to further Law and Religion scholarship.
