Religion and Law with John Witte - Conversations with History

8/8/2011; 57 minutes

Host Harry Kreisler welcomes John Witte, Jr., Director of the Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University. Witte explores the evolution of legal studies and the emergence of an interdisciplinary study of religion and law. He describes the nature of each realm and the dialectic that shapes their interaction. He traces religion's role in securing political and civil rights in the West exploring the implications of this for addressing the complexity of a multicultural world in which many religions seek a place in the global community including the questions raised by the introduction of Sharia law into Western courts.
