Gospel, Morality, and Civil Law. Evangile, moralite et lois civiles.
What sort of differentiations and what kind of articulations are there between religious authority, morality, and civil laws? This question takes place at the heart of the contemporary, its debates, its challenges, its aporias. Presented here is a broad historical record, presentations of present situations-concerning Islam, the United States, the Orthodox world, and the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights-and the theological revivals articulated Post-Vatican II. In the background are the motives of the so-called natural law, human rights, and a dialectic of the "two Reigns." The majority of this text is in French, with seven essays in English.
