The sacred texts and legal traditions of Christianity, Judaism and Islam have contributed much to the cultivation and violation of religious human rights around the world—particularly the rights of women, children, and dissidents. Desmond Tutu, Martin Marty, and twenty leading scholars offer and authoritative assessment of these contributions, and challenge peoples of all faiths to adopt “golden rules of religious liberty.” This volume and its companion Religious Human Rights in Global Perspective: Legal Perspectives are products of an ongoing project on religion, human rights and democracy undertaken by the Law and Religion Program at Emory University, Atlanta.
