The relationship between Christianity and human rights is a point of contention. Neither the early modern condemnation nor the modern endorsement of human rights by the Christian churches is actually definitive. Fabian Wittreck furnishes evidence for the Christian criticism of the idea of human rights (and its demise) as well as for deeper roots which distinguish Christianity from other traditions.
