February 16–17, 2023
Religion in the Public Square
In 1963, in the case of Abington Township v. Schempp, the U.S. Supreme Court decided with an 8–1 decision that mandatory Bible reading and prayer were unconstitutional, that they violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. On February 16–17, 2023, in reflection on the sixtieth anniversary of the court’s decision, the Kripke Center will host a symposium on Religion in the Public Square.
The schedule of the symposium, including the titles of the presentations, will be found here at a later date.
The symposium will take place Thursday and Friday, February 16–17, in Skutt Student Center 105, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
