The Letter Of Richard Wyche: An Interrogation Narrative, Christopher G. Bradley May 2012

The Letter Of Richard Wyche: An Interrogation Narrative, Christopher G. Bradley

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

This is a translation, with introduction, of the Letter of Richard Wyche—one of only two heresy interrogation narratives from medieval England written from the perspective of the accused heretic.

The Letter is an autobiographical account of Richard Wyche’s interrogation, in 1402-1403, at the hands of church officials. Wyche originally composed the Letter in (Middle) English but it survives only in a Latin translation, alongside other forbidden texts in a manuscript now in Prague. Wyche wrote and covertly sent away this Letter to an audience of intimates sympathetic to the cause (the so-called Wycliffite or Lollard heresy) before his ...

The Liberal Polity And Illiberalism In Religious Traditions, Paul E. Salamanca Jan 2003

The Liberal Polity And Illiberalism In Religious Traditions, Paul E. Salamanca

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

It is in the nature of religious traditions to be somewhat illiberal. Indeed, a religion that does not require its adherents to affirm at least some belief is probably a logical impossibility. Christians, for example, must believe something about the nature of Christ. Even Unitarians, who advocate tolerance of all religions, must affirm a belief in tolerance.

Recently, and largely because of the events of September 11, 2001, enhanced attention has been paid to certain potentially illiberal aspects of Islam in the United States. The journalist Daniel Pipes, for example, has written about certain Moslem Americans who, according to his ...

Doma: An Unconstitutional Establishment Of Fundamentalist Christianity, James Donovan Jan 1997

Doma: An Unconstitutional Establishment Of Fundamentalist Christianity, James Donovan

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

Most analyses of DOMA direct their attentions to the constitutionality of the effects of this legislation: Does it violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution? Does it transgress the Constitutional requirements of Due Process? Does DOMA grant states a power they did not already possess, namely, the power to ignore extraterritorial marriages?

This Article, however, takes a different approach and scrutinizes the constitutionality of the intent of DOMA. According to the text of the Act, DOMA's purposes are "to define and protect the institution of marriage,"" where marriage is defined to exclude same-sex partners. To be constitutionally valid ...
