This essay is for a Western Civilization Class. Instructions: Choose three examples of a state and its religion(s)–one from the ancient world (3000BCE to 500CE), one from the medieval (500CE to 1400CE), and one from the early modern (1400CE to 1700CE). Describe the relationship between religion(s) and the state and the role played by religion in that state. Offer suggestions about how these relationships came to be (how they developed or changed). What forces or influences helped create each relationship? Was there any tension between religion and the state? How integrated or separate were they?
