"For anyone...interested or involved in modern church-state questions, this is an indispensable reference."--Choice "This book contains an interesting set of documents on an important topic. Maclear has assembled a group of 186 offical documents that, read together with the help of Maclear's generally clear and concise introductions, can serve as a stimulating introduction to church-state relations in the West in the last three hundred years."--Church History "The whole is a carefully constructed and well organized compilation. It fits very well a course in the history of the modern religious bodies and their relationship to the state."--The Catholic Historical Review "...a useful translation of many of the main documents on this vast theme, from the Gallican Articles of 1682 to the 1990 Soviet law on the freedom of conscience and religion."--Journal of Ecclesiastical History

- Publisher 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.
