Politics of Religious Freedom

Ann Pellegrini

University of Chicago Press

Taking the landmark case of Everson v. Board of Education as her launching point, Pellegrini shows how the combined effect of the disestablishment and free exercise clause has generated a particular form of Christian secularism in American legal and public culture. Certain religious claims and practices enter the public sphere marked as “secular,” while others do not. Pelligrini examines the ways in which Protestant assumptions underlie secular premises in First Amendment jurisprudence.
