Dividing Church & State: The Display
This time of year, someone invariably mentions the so-called war on Christmas. One key legal principle discussed in War on Christmas arguments is the separation of church and state. While you might know that Roger Williams founded Rhode Island, you might not know that he also introduced the concept of separation of church and state in America. In honor of the holiday season, and our namesake, we have collected and displayed books in the library on the topic of separation of church and state. See a guide with these books and additional resources on our website. For a very deep and eloquent dive into the religious and philosophical thoughts of Roger Williams, see retired Professor Edward J. Eberle’s article on this topic.
Enjoy the break, enjoy the holidays you celebrate, be safe, and see you next year!Library Blog
