The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom: Its Evolution and Consequences in American History
Cambridge University Press, 29. apr. 1988 - 373 strani
This book examines the famous Jefferson document that foreshadowed the Constitution's guarantee of religious liberty, the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom. Jefferson wrote the Virginia Statute and shepherded it through a decade-long struggle for adoption. The statute reflects two key Revolutionary principles: absolute freedom of religious conscience and the separation of church and state.
