about

Granted that it originated in the geopolitics of the late seventeenth century, what should now be the relationship of the established Church of England with a British state at once more secular and plurally religious? What are the implications for the Crown, the legislature, other religions and the Church itself? This study explains current arrangements not only in England but also in Scotland and--with special emphasis on Scandinavia--the rest of the EU, and ventures some future scenarios.
