Die Kirchen und der Staat des Grundgesetzes – gestern, heute, morgen
[Mutual Absence of Expectations? The Churches and the Constitutional State – Past, Present, and Future]
Ed. by Große Kracht, Hermann-Josef / Schreiber, Gerhard
Aims and Scope
The relationship of the secular state to the churches was already a matter of conflict in the early post-war period – with regard to a possible “re-Christianization” of society. And after 1989, with the surge of secularization in the united Germany, the issue became even more contentious. The volume takes an interdisciplinary perspective to examine the reciprocal expectations of the Churches and the Constitutional State.
