Much has been written on specific religious legal systems, yet substantial comparative studies that strive to compare systems, identifying their analogies and differences have been relatively few.This absence undermines the capacity to understand religions and becomes particularly serious when the faithful of these religions live together in the same geographical space, as happens today with increasing frequency. Both interreligious dialogue and dialogue between States and religions presuppose a set of data and information that only comparative research can provide.

This book seeks to address addresses this gap in the literature by presenting a comparative analysis of Christian, Jewish, Islamic and Hindu laws and traditions. Divided into five parts, the first section of the book offers the historical background for the legal analysis that is developed in the subsequent sections. Section two deals with the sources of law in the four religions under discussion. Section three addresses the dynamics of belonging and status; and Section four looks at issues relating to the conclusion of marriage, and its dissolution relating to marriage, its nature, formation and termination The fifth and final section discusses how each religion views the legal Other. Each section concludes with a chapter exploring what we can learn from a comparative examination of the topic that is dealt with in that section.

Written by leading experts in the field, this book presents a clear and comprehensive picture of key religious legal systems along with a substantial bibliography. It provides a state of the art overview of scholarship in this area accompanied by a critical evaluation. As such, it will be an invaluable resource for all those concerned with religious legal systems, multiculturalism, and comparative law.
