Visiting Assistant Professor of History John Ragosta discussed his new book, Religious Freedom: Jeffersons Legacy, America’s Creed, on June 4 at Jefferson’s plantation Monticello in Charlottesville, Va.

Ragosta’s work responds to critics who have questioned the role of the Jeffersonian vision of separation of church and state in the development of the First Amendment and U.S. religious freedom.

He also presented his research on June 6 at the Library of Virginia and on June 13 at Jefferson’s Poplar Forest.
