Five Great Supreme Court Cases on State and Religion

In this 5-week course, we will read and discuss five seminal cases involving the relationship between church, the believer, and the state. These cases will most likely be: 

(1) Reynolds v. United States; 
(2) Epperson v. Arkansas; 
(3) Zelman v. Simmons-Harris; 
(4) Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado; and 
(5) Kennedy v. Bremerton School District. 

We will discuss these cases from multiple perspectives, including the doctrinal and historical perspectives.
