Church and State, Volume 89

Copertina anteriore
Hawthorn Books, 1961 - 128 pagine
The Church-state problem has persisted through the ages, from the days of the Roman Empire to our modern democratic times. This book attempts to disentangle the main threads of the Church-state relationship and to make this relationship intelligible to the general reader. The Church differs from civil society in three ways. First, it is supernatural and spiritual. Secondly, the Church's ultimate end, and the means it uses to attain that end, differ greatly from the ends and means of the civil power. And third, the Church was created by Christ Himself, and thus exists by divine right.
