Summary Religious-secular distinctions have been crucial to the way in which modern governments have rationalised their governance and marked out their sovereignty - as crucial as the territorial boundaries that they have drawn around nations. The authors of this volume provide a multi-dimensional picture of how the category of religion has served the ends of modern government.
