Abstract

This article looks at three early cases dealing with the equitable doctrine of undue
influence, arising out of donations to religious groups and institutions. It will explore
each of the three cases in turn, by placing them in their appropriate historical, social,
religious and political context. By better understanding the cases we also get a better
insight into the modern law of undue influence and the societal context in which it
operates, and what are today the right questions for lawyers and judges to ask when
dealing with undue influence, particularly undue influence within a religious context.
