Description

The Journal of Church and State, published four times a year, is concerned with what has been called the ""greatest subject in the history of the West."" It seeks to stimulate interest, dialogue, research, and publication in the broad area of religion and the state. JCS publishes constitutional, historical, philosophical, theological, and sociological studies on religion and the body politic in various countries and cultures of the world, including the United States. Each issue features, in addition to a timely editorial, five or more major articles, and thirty-five to forty reviews of significant books related to church and state. Periodically, important ecclesiastical documents and government texts of legislation and/or court decisions are also published. Regular features include ""Notes on Church State Affairs"", which reports current developments throughout the world, and a list of ""Recent Doctoral Dissertations in Church and State.""
