This interdisciplinary course, co-taught by a law school professor and an American historian, concerns the intersection of religion, liberty, and law in American culture. It introduces students to the major texts and historical issues concerning religious liberty, using legal history and case law, intellectual and social history, and political philosophy.

  • The unique structure of having both a law professor and a religious history professor teaching you provides a lot of insight into religious freedom in America.

  • This course was intellectually stimulating in so many ways and I definitely came out of it with both new perspectives and information on a variety of subjects, most notably the role of religion in American history and politics.
