James Madison: The Father of Religious Liberty, Hardcover by Smith, Rodney K in Books, Nonfiction | eBay. To James Madison, the idea of religion goes much deeper than how one does or doesn’t practice. He called conscience “the most sacred of all property,” and, like a good scholar of John Locke, Madison felt strongly that one’s property was a natural right.

  While James Madison’s role as the father of the United States Constitution is widely understood, his passion for securing religious freedom is not. Yet there is no principle in all of Madison’s long public career that he held with greater tenacity than a belief in religious liberty. His defense of religious freedom began when he stood with his father outside a jail in the village of Orange. Published on the th anniversary of the ratification of the Constitution, this anthology features the prinicpal writings on religious liberty by the ""Father of the Constitution,"" and essays by prominent politicians and scholars—including Lowell Weicker, Michael Novak, Henry Steele Commager, and Daniel Boorstin—on Madison's politics, philosophy, and legacy.

The essays by eminent scholars reprinted in this volume explore various facets and aspects of Madison's legal, constitutional and political thought.
