The Woodrow Wilson Center is the living national memorial to President Wilson . WILFRED MCCLAY: Thanks, Joe. I am delighted to be here.

The Woodrow Wilson Center is the living national memorial to President Wilson, established by Congress in 1968, headquartered here in Washington. It’s a non-partisan institution supported by public and private funds, engaged in the study of national and world affairs. Major support for the Religion Returns to the Public Square project came from the Wilson Center’s Federal Conference Fund, and I’d like to thank the Center’s director, Lee Hamilton, and the other people at the Center for turning their support to this project. Other funding came from the Siemens Corporation and from the Pew Charitable Trusts.

Despite talk of a "naked public square," religion has never really lost its place in American public life. As the twenty-first century opened, it was re-emerging in unexpected and paradoxical ways. Religious institutions were considered for expanded roles in welfare and education, at the same time that the limits of religious pluralism---as, for example, in the relation of Islam to American values--became a question of urgent public concern.

Religion Returns to the Public Square;Faith and Policy in America explores how and why religion has to be mixed up with American politics. Uncovering philosophical, historical, legal, and social roots of this relationship, these essays go beyond hot-button issues to reflect on the current interactions and future possibilities of religion and politics in America.
