Religious institutions find themselves facing precarious legal challenges, where the constitutionality of government appropriations could be challenged, and faculty are becoming increasingly concerned about their academic freedom. Analyzes how the law applies to federal and state aid to religious higher education. (Contains 119 footnotes.) (MLF)
