Natural Law, Liberalism, and Christianity
Classical liberalism arose at a time when Christian orthodoxy was still vibrant. Liberalism and Christian orthodoxy, sharing a number of fundamental ideas about the nature of man and of interpersonal relations, presuppose the same moral ontology of natural law. The high tide of Christian orthodoxy and classical liberalism belongs to the era when natural law was the fundamental concept of all serious thought about the human world.
