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.
