Adrian Vermeule, law professor at Harvard, has a brilliant and beautiful essay up at the New Republic in the form of a review of Jack Balkin's new book. It is a short essay, and well worth the read, especially towards the end where he questions the validity of the idea that the sociology of religion is applicable to the sociology of constitutionalism.
