Abstract:We are born equal, where does the similarity end? In ancient times, before the advent of Christianity, there was no separation between 'church' and state. Religion was generally considered as one of many functions of the community. In monarchies, the ruler was usually the highest religious leader and sometimes considered divine. Under republican government, religious officials were appointed just like political ones. In some cases a religious authority also held the the position of highest civil authority.

In World Constitutionalism, over two dozen scholars, academicians, administrators, and leaders of civil society have come together to pen their innovative ideas. It is an attempt to carry their vision over national barriers through the realms of Human Rights, Environmental Law, Feminist Justice and Global Democracy. World Constitutionalism endeavours to foster scientific study of world governance as a multi disciplinary subject with an added flavour of law to give it special sanctity in the minds of the Peoples of the World. The book is an addition to the growing movement for World Unity that presently reechoes round the globe.
