This chapter provides a background on the different discourses about law and religion. It describes the separation of the church and the state, the loss of faith in the secular, the secularization of law, and several strands regarding secular law. The bulk of this chapter describes the main topics of this volume. The chapters of the first section of the book are historical reassessments of the founding moments of the legal secular. The chapters of the second section examine the ambiguous phenomenology of the legal secular today.
