Professor Sarah Barringer Gordon
Four years after writing an award-winning book on the Mormon practice of polygamy in the 19th Century, legal historian Sarah Barringer Gordon is turning to the conflicts generated between law and religion in the late 20th Century.

In an upcoming book, titled The Spirit of the Law: Religion and Litigation in the Twentieth Century, Gordon explores how believers have shaped the constitutional law of religion since World War II, and how America’s unique concept of religious liberty defines the country. “One of the real myths,” says Gordon, “is that it was secular people who created that law, and that’s not true, it was believers.”
