    schema:description ""Comparative Religious Law provides for the first time a study of the regulatory instruments of Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious organisations in Britain in light of their historical religious laws. Norman Doe questions assumptions about the pervasiveness, character and scope of religious laws, from the view that it is not or should not be recognised by civil law, to the idea that there may be a fundamental incompatibility between religious and civil law. He proposes that religious law pervades society, is recognised by civil law, has both a religious and temporal character, and regulates wide areas of believers' lives. Subjects include sources of law, faith leaders, governance, worship and education, rites of passage, divorce and children, and religion-State relations. A Charter of 'the principles of religious law' common to all three Abrahamic faiths is proposed, to stimulate greater mutual understanding between religion and society and between the three faiths themselves"--Back cover."@en ;
