Sovereignty as a religious concept

The Monist 90 (1):126-143 (2007)
Contemporary scholars writing on sovereignty can be roughly divided between those who believe that we should get rid of the concept (because it is inherently confusing, or essentially contested) and those who grant many of the criticisms of the first group, but add that we nevertheless cannot do without the concept, since much of our thinking about politics in general, and the state in particular, seems to be structured by this notion. I hope to demonstrate that much of the confusion surrounding the notion is due precisely to fact that sovereignty is an inherently religious concept
