Taken on Faith: the Concept of Religion in First Amendment Jurisprudence
A Crossroads of Religion and Politics Lecture by Jesse Covington. Professor Covington, the 2014-15 William E. Simon Fellow in Religion and Public Life in the James Madison Program, is Associate Professor of Political Science at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA, where he teaches and writes in the fields of political theory and constitutional law. His research interests focus on the First Amendment, political theology, and the foundations of political liberalism. He recently co-edited Natural Law and Evangelical Political Thought, to which he contributed a chapter on St. Augustine and natural law. As a visiting fellow with the James Madison Program, he will be working on a manuscript provisionally titled Taken on Faith: The Concept of Religion in First Amendment Jurisprudence.
