The First Amendment

Title page, John Locke’s Treatises of Government from 1690 edition

This week Hilary and Geoff start a new series of episodes devoted to the Bill of Rights. We’re starting at the beginning and doing a deep dive into the First Amendment. Along the way we’ll discuss Prince John and the Magna Carta, the English Civil War, John Locke, the Glorious Revolution, and even the Virginia Declaration of Rights issued a month before the Declaration of Independence!
