Introductory Material for the Course "Religion and Politics"

By Charles S. Liebman


Liebman discusses, in the broadest sense, the interrelationship between religion and politics and religion and state, providing information and ideas to consider whether separating religion and politics would be good for religion and/or for the political system and whether it is always or sometimes possible to impose such a separation. In doing so, he considers the role of religion in shaping political culture and how political and social structures impact religion and delineates the defining characteristics of religious systems and political systems to make a case for and against separating religion and politics.
