    The first accessible history of blasphemy, from the ancient world to today's ferocious religious debates. A phenomenon that spans human experience, from the ancient world right up to today's ferocious religious debates, blasphemy is an act of individuals, but also a widespread and constant presence in cultural, political and religious life. Acts Against God is the first accessible history of this crime - its prosecution, its impact and its punishment and suppression. The book begins in ancient Greece with the genesis of blasphemy's link with the state. From here we move on to blasphemy in the medieval world, in the Reformation and the Enlightenment. The book concludes with the twenty-first century, with individuals and the state seeking to adopt blasphemy as the means to resist the secular and the globalisation of culture.
