Abstract

Law and religion “continue to cross-over and cross-fertilize each other.” Not only throughout history but still today, as John Witte (2014) rightly states, have law and religion been related conceptually, methodologically and institutionally. They share hermeneutical, casuistic, systematic and pedagogical methods, and they are both deeply related to human morality (Fuller 1969; Schweiker 1998; Raz 2009).
