Philosophy and Religion Hearst Lecture: Death-Qualifying the Jury, Constituting the People

"Death-Qualifying the Jury, Constituting the People," a lecture by Winnifred Sullivan, Professor of Religion and Affiliate Professor of Law at Indiana Univeristy, who will describe the jury’s distinctive role in the administration of the death penalty in the US. She will consider the effect of efforts by U.S. courts to secularize and rationalize the process by banning the Bible and biblical words from the death penalty trial and insisting on an entirely individualized decision by each juror.
