Article: Christianity and Equity

Samuel L. Bray and Paul B. Miller recently published an article entitled, Christianity and Equity, Wills, Trusts, & Estates Law ejournal (2022). Estate planning

Provided below is the abstract to the Article: 

In this chapter for the Oxford Handbook of Christianity and Law, we survey the line of development of equity from Aristotle to the chancellors of the English Court of Chancery. In between, we trace equity through Roman law, the New Testament, scholastic theology, canon law, and the Magisterial Reformation. We conclude by noting ways in which contemporary law still bears the imprint, even if faint, of classical and Christian sources of the equity tradition.
