9780945454069: Paying the Words Extra: Religious Discourse in the Supreme Court of the United States (Religions of the World (Harvard))

In 1985 the Supreme Court ruled in Lynch v. Donnelly that the inclusion of a life-sized creche in a civic Christmas display did not constitute an unconstitutional establishment of religion. Through her examination of this difficult case, Sullivan reveals divergent American understandings of the nature of religion, the role of religion in public life, and the relationship and interaction of law and religion.
