Church & State History

Samuel von Pufendorf is born in Dorfchemnitz, Saxony. Samuel von Pufendorf will writre extensively on the subject of natural law and some of his most important contributions will be to the development of theories of church government.

Pufendorf will be careful to distinguish between the appropriate spheres of authority of church and state while also insisting on the supremacy of the latter. His ideas won't amount to a full separation of church and state, but they will pave the way for general religious toleration.
