Christian Religion and the Shape of Property

Bable on Witte & Alexander on Law and Christianity

Paul T. Babie (University of Adelaide - Law School) has posted Looking East to the Concept of Property A Review Essay of Witte and Alexander, Christianity and Law: An Introduction (Adelaide Law Review, Forthcoming) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
    The notion that there is anything like ‘Christian law’ in the way that there is Islamic law, Judaic law, or Hindu law is little understood. Yet, increasingly, scholars, both lawyers and theologians, tell us that one finds in the Western legal tradition itself a form of Christian law, at least in origin if not contemporary operation.
