Lecture: "The Religious Roots of the First Amendment"

All are welcome to attend a book talk by Nicholas Miller, associate professor of church history at Andrews University. He will give a brief lecture related to his recent book, The Religious Roots of the First Amendment: Dissenting Protestants and the Separation of Church and State (Oxford University Press, 2012). Miller received his Ph.D. from Notre Dame’s Department of History in 2010.

Donald L. Drakeman, author of Church, State, and Original Intent, will offer a brief comment.

Dinner will be served.

A small number of copies of Miller’s book are available for attendees. Please email jmccorm2@nd.edu in advance if you plan to attend and would like a copy set aside.
