Treason against God

A History of the Offense of Blasphemy


Leonard J. Levy’s Treason against God is a study of the suppression of the freedom of religious expression from ancient Greece to 1700. This is the first of a projected two-volume work; the second volume will continue the story within the Anglo-American legal tradition to the present. Professor Levy is a well-known authority on American legal history. His study of the Origins of the Fifth Amendment was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1969.
