The subject of church and state is one intimately associated with the history of Christianity and Western civilization. Not limited to any one religious tradition, civilization, or period of history, the subject has historical and universal significance to all cultures and religious traditions throughout the world. This volume addresses the broader perspectives of religion and the state in the ancient world, in the biblical world of Judaism and Christianity, and in other religious traditions. Attention is given to general works on church and state that treat the subject broadly, not limited to any particular nation, religious tradition, or single aspect of church-state relations. Additionally, there is material on major topics integrally related to church and state, such as civil disobedience, civil religion, liberation theology, patriotism, and nationalism. Finally, sources are included on religion in international affairs and interfaith relations, both necessarily linked to the subject of church and state, as well as religion and the economic order; religion and human rights and the effect of religion on war and peace.

?This title has been reviewed jointly with "Church and State in the Modern World: A Critical Assessment and Annotated Bibliography," by James E. Wood Jr. Products of a lifetime of scholarship, these substantial companion bibliographies bring together nearly 5,000 carefully annotated citations of English-language books that deal with church and state in world history in the ancient, medieval, and modern worlds. The subtitle for both volumes, "A Critical Assessment and Annotated Bibliography," is accurate. Together they will likely stand as the definitive bibliographies of their genre....This comprehensive work appears at a most appropriate time for growing academic interest in the subject. Essential. Upper-level undergraduates and above.??Choice
