Divine Law and Contemporary Societies: a Historical Overview of Judaism, Christianity, Islam

Lecturer: François Dupuigrenet Desroussilles (Visiting Professor, Department of Area Studies)

Our societies today are societies of a law without any divine dimension. In general we imagine that the history that led up to our own days was one of a separation from sacrality in the three monotheistic religions. This distinction is considered by some as an emancipation, by others as decadence.
One might well wonder, however, whether that “separation”, and its concrete translation in the institutional relations between Church and State, ever actually took place

Language: English|Admission Free|No Registration Required

FRANÇOIS DUPUIGRENET DESROUSSILLES is professor of Christianity in the Religion department of Florida State University. He was for 17 years curator of rare books in the Bibliotheque nationale in Paris.
