The interaction of faith and the community is a fundamental of modern society. As the first country to adopt Presbyterianism, Scotland has developed a system of church government which is now in world-wide use. This book examines the development and current state of the relevant Scots law. The impact of Human Rights and various discrimination laws will be assessed.
Drawing on previously published material and discussing current topical issues such as new belief systems, divorce and civil partnerships, abortion, euthanasia and withdrawal of medical support, this book makes comparisons between Scotland and other legal and religious jurisdictions in the wake of globalization.
