Interpreting the First Amendment: Establishing the Establishment Clause (5 Week Course)
"Congress shall make no law...". And so begins the First Amendment, a complex 45-word sentence that has been debated since its inception; and this class will only address the first 10 words! Known as the "Establishment Clause" of the First Amendment, this clause has stood at the intersection of American law, American religion, and American culture since its writing in 1791. From the notion of a "wall of separation" to modern legal debates, this class will explore the role of religion in America through investigation of some of the most fascinating Supreme Court cases of the past 60 years. This class will be a combination of American legal history and religious history.
This class will be held in onsite at WIH.
