John Witte, Jr.

John Witte Jr. is the Jonas Robitscher Professor of Law, Alonzo L. McDonald Distinguished Professor, and the director of the Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University. Witte is among the world’s leading experts on religion and law and Calvinist contributions to freedom. His research focuses on religious liberty, marriage and family law, human rights, and legal history. Among Witte’s many publications are No Establishment of Religion: America’s Original Contribution to Religious Liberty (2012), Religion and the American Constitutional Experiment (2011, third ed.), Christianity and Human Rights: An Introduction (2010), and The Reformation of Rights: Law, Religion, and Human Rights in Early Modern Calvinism (2008). For Georgetown’s “Christianity and Freedom” initiative, he wrote an essay on Calvinist Contributions to Freedom in Early Modern Europe, in which he examines major 17th- and 18th-century Calvinist reformers who emerged from early modern repression and persecution to lead movements for religious freedom.
