Jean Carbonnier, Religion, a Basis for Law?
Religion may create rules of law, either through the mediation of moral, or even directly , it may also send back to the secular powers the burden of lawmaking. But law is still a spontaneous upspring of justice : in this matter, religion is often seen as bringing grace, hope, prophecy.

Key Words : religion, moral
