Abstract:     
This essay makes the argument that the controversy about the Park51 mosque is better understood when it is seen as a problem of religious establishment than when it is seen as a problem of religious tolerance. The religious and legal history of the property originally granted to Trinity Church Wall Street is used to illustrate two contemporary forms of American religion now occupying Trinity land, the proposed Park51 Muslim center and the former World Trade Center site.
