COERTZEN, Pieter. Freedom of religion: From the Church Order of Dordt (1619) to South Africa (2018). In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2018, vol.52, n.2, pp.1-10. ISSN 2305-0853.

This article is about freedom of religion as an integral part of the Reformation of the 16th century and how it was expressed in the Church Order of Dordt (1619) and later at the Cape of Good Hope under the rule of the Political Council. The article also traces the route of freedom of religion under the rule of the English and after 1910, under the rule of various political parties until the current situation (2018) with a Constitution that guarantees freedom of religion for every person in South Africa, and The South African Charter of Religious Rights and Freedoms.
