Civil Religion from Antiquity to the Enlightenment

Event Date: 
23 Oct 2019 to 24 Oct 2019

Civil religion - the belief that public religion could be subsumed within the administration of the state - has long been recognised by intellectual historians of the early modern period as a feature of republican discourse, most often conceived of as an inheritance from ancient Rome. This recognition, however, has allowed civil religion to remain underexplored as an intellectual tradition on its own terms.
