Church and State

In the US, issues of the relationship between the church and politics are often framed within a particular context of American history, the disestablishment of religion, and various issues of church-state separation. In the UK things are not the same, having both an established church and a monarchy.

Within this context, N.T. Wright provides some interesting reflections on the church, politics, establishment, and monarchy in his lecture "God and Caesar, Then and Now," a talk given back in April at Westminster Abbey in honor of the jubilee of the Queen's reign.
