The Faith of Our Founding Fathers
By Steven Waldman
On July 4th, America celebrates its independence and its core principle of religious freedom. But the birth of religious liberty was a long and difficult struggle, as I discovered in researching my recent book, Founding Faith. On Beliefnet we're proud to make available the Founding Faith Archive, where you can find a collection of documents and personal letters from the Founding Fathers about their religious lives and religious liberty. In honor of Independence Day, we offer a collection of art and drawings depicting important historical moments and themes of religious freedom in America.
