Movsesian on Religious Displays in the US and Europe

Professor Mark Movsesian’s latest article has been accepted for publication in the peer-reviewed Oxford Journal of Law and Religion.  The article, Crosses and Culture: State-Sponsored Religious Displays in the US and Europe, compares the recent jurisprudence of the US Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights on state-sponsored religious displays. Although both courts insist that government has a duty of religious “neutrality,” the American court defines neutrality more rigorously that the European court. Mark argues that this difference results from institutional and cultural factors, specifically, the different social models of religion in the US and Europe.
