Westminster John Knox Press From Sacrament to Contract, Second Edition: Marriage, Religion, and Law in the Western Tradition - eBook

This newly revised and enlarged edition of From Sacrament to Contract: Marriage, Religion, and Law in the Western Tradition John Witte' explores the interplay of law, theology, and marriage in the Western experience.

Witte uncovers the core assumptions that formed the theological genetic code of Western marriage and family law. He explores the systematic models of marriage developed by Catholics, Lutherans, Calvinists, Anglicans, and Enlightenment thinkers, and the transformative influence of each model on Western marriage law.

In addition, he traces the millennium-long reduction of marriage from a complex spiritual, social, contractual, and natural institution into a simple private contract with freedom of entrance, exercise, and exit for husband and wife alike.

This second edition updates and expands each chapter and the bibliography. It also includes three new chapters on classical, biblical, and patristic sources.
