In this seminar, we will explore why the Supreme Court has ruled that the First Amendment requires the “separation of church and state.” We also will discuss criticisms of separationist jurisprudence by leading Supreme Court justices. In an attempt to understand the degree to which the Supreme Court has accurately interpreted the Constitution’s protection of religious freedom, we will also carefully examine James Madison’s philosophical and constitutional thinking about religious freedom and how it might be best protected.

PRE-READING: Please read the three texts below in advance of the session in order to get the most out of the discussion.
