What is Religious Liberty? The Founders’ View
Religious liberty is often called our “first freedom.” But what does the right of religious liberty entail? What is unique about the American conception of religious liberty? In this conversation led by Professor Muñoz, we will discuss the American Founders political philosophy of natural rights and what they meant when they declared religious liberty an “unalienable natural right.”

He is the Founding Director of ND’s Center for Citizenship & Constitutional Government.

He won a National Endowment for the Humanities fellowship to support his book, Religious Liberty and the American Founding: Natural Rights and the Original Meanings of the First Amendment Religion Clauses, published by the University of Chicago Press in 2022. An award-winning teacher and a popular lecturer, Dr. Muñoz has spoken at nearly 100 colleges and universities in the past several years.
