A Short History of Secularism
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungSecularism was born of Christianity. This book argues that it is impossible to understand the idea of the secular without appreciating that, at root, it is Christian. It reshapes discussions of western culture, religion and politics. It is suitable for students of religion, political philosophy, and the history of ideas.
PortraitGraeme Smith is Dean of Non-Residential Training at St Michael's College, Llandaff and associate lecturer at the University of Cardiff. He is executive editor of the international journal Political Theology, and has published widely in the field of religion and politics.
