Journal of Law and Religion

Volume 36, Issue 2  | August 2021

Free to read until November 15, 2021

The new issue of the Journal of Law and Religion features four articles that bring new perspectives on important historical questions and moments for the study of law and religion. Dana Lloyd reexamines the influential U.S. Supreme Court case, Lyng v. Northwest Cemetery Protective Association, to consider what the Court missed by not listening to the testimony of Indigenous witnesses. Nate Oman offers the first historical treatment of legal incorporation by the Mormon church and, in so doing, complicates the story of the first disestablishment in the U.S. J.S. Kirkland examines protection for laborers in medieval England through the ecclesiastical law pertaining to work on holy days. Emmanuel Bloch provides a careful study of how Conservative Judaism opened to the possibility of ordaining women rabbis. In addition to these significant new articles, this issue also features symposia conversations on three important new books in the field: A Secular Age beyond the West: Religion, Law and the State in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, edited by Mirjam Künkler, John Madeley, and Shylashri Shankar; Who's the Bigot? Learning from Conflicts over Marriage and Civil Rights Law, by Linda C. McClain; and Politics after Christendom: Political Theology in a Fractured World, by David VanDrunen. Enjoy the new issue and, as always, you can find the latest articles, essays, and book reviews on our FirstView page.

We hope you enjoy this new issue of JLR.
