Today, we continue our summer series looking into the essays in a brand new volume entitled Christianity and Constitutionalism (Oxford University Press 2023) (PURCHASE HERE). In this episode, we discuss the essay from Dr. Joan Lockwood O'Donovan on the English Reformation, modernity, and public theology. Joan is an Honorary Reader at the University of St. Andrews School of Divinity and author of Theology of Law and Authority in the English Reformation and English Public Theology: A Reformation Response to the Crisis of Natural Rights (forthcoming).

Today, we continue our summer series looking into the essays in a brand new volume entitled Christianity and Constitutionalism (Oxford University Press 2023) (PURCHASE HERE). In this episode, we discuss the essay from Professor John Witte, Jr. on the Protestant Reformers and their contribution to the development of constitutionalism. John is the Robert W. Woodruff Professor of Law at Emory University School of Law and one of the preeminent scholars on the confluence of Christianity and law. He has written more books that I can count, recently including The Blessings of Liberty: Human Rights and Religous Freedom in the Western Legal Tradition (here) and Church, State, and Family: Reconciling Traditional Teachings and Modern Liberties (here). Last year, he delivered his Gifford Lecture at the University of Aberdeen on a new calvinist tradition of rights (watch). His complete inventory of publications can be mined here.
