Catholic Perspectives on Religious Liberty
September 13, 2012
On September 13, 2012, the Religious Freedom Project convened distinguished Catholic legal theorists, philosophers, political scientists, and theologians to discuss the meaning and value of religious liberty from different perspectives in the Roman Catholic tradition. Over the course of a daylong symposium, these scholars debated the legacy of Dignitatis Humanae, the Church’s landmark declaration on religious freedom issued in 1965. This report is an edited transcript of that conference.
