Separating Church and State 

This edition of Bill of Rights in Action looks at issues surrounding the separation of church and state. The first article focuses on the development of this doctrine in the United States. The second article explores how the ancient Roman Empire, a multi-ethnic, multi-religious society, handled religious diversity. The final article examines a recent U.S. Supreme Court case involving state aid to parochial school students.
