Calvin in the Public Square Calvin in the Public Square

Liberal Democracies, Rights, and Civil Liberties

by Hall, David W.

In the past two decades, a small cottage industry of important new scholarship has emerged documenting the distinctive Calvinist contributions to the development of Western theories of law, democracy, and human rights. In this engaging book, Calvin 500 series editor David Hall offers a crisp distillation of the latest scholarly findings and a clarion call to reclaim the Calvinist pedigree of some of our most cherished political ideas and institutions, tracing the extraordinary influence of the Genevan church reformer on the development of liberal democracies, rights, and civil liberties.

Paperback, 225 pages, Notes, index of subjects and names.
