'New Horizons' Published

Jan 2011

A collection of essays, edited by Professor Norman Doe and Dr Russell Sandberg, has now been published as part of the Law and Religion Studies series published by Peeters, Leuven.

Law and Religion: New Horizons includes thirteen previously unpublished essays by experts in the field and a detailed conclusion by the two editors, examining the changing interaction between law and religion and the new horizons.
